Thumb new battery

I just installed a new Shorai lithium iron battery.Great way to save almost 5 lbs. of up high weight and get away from spilled acid and go maintenance free at the same time. I used the bigger of the two sizes which fit the Sertao. The LFX 14L5-BS12 is the same size as the stock BMW battery but is 4.75 lbs. lighter. It has 14Ah vr. 12Ah for the stock and has 210cca. The stock BMW battery has 12.77 volts at rest while the Shorai has 13.6. Even at 90% discharged the Shorai still has more volts for the injector pump than the standard battery. I've been told the pump must have at least 11.9 volts to fire the pump which is why the voltage is so important. The new Shorai cost $159.95
