I also use Li-ions in some high performance EDF aircraft and even though I have not had an issue with one I have heard of them burning down houses and even cars, I always recharge mine in an old ammo box with the lid down and latched.

That along with the problems with Li-ions on the new 787 and they've been the cause of two air freighter crashes makes me very leery to pony up all that dough and slap one in a bike that's electrical system was not designed for Lithium batteries, I also fail to see any cost/benefit.
I buy my GS batteries at Walmart simply due to the logistics of a warranty claim should it ever fail to start my bike, which is all I need the battery to do.
