Battery Fires

If it turns out that the battery fires are related to the recharging system then I worry that the BMW generator was set up to charge the recommended batteries and not Lithium-Ion. My understanding is that a new charger needs to be bought for the Lithium-Ion batteries so perhaps the specs on the charging flow to the mounted battery may need adjusting as well. I have not heard of any fires related to motorcycle batteries however but they are fairly new in this area.
