Thanks guys. I'm going to put the factory Yuasa YTZ14S battery back in the bike as I can't afford to get stranded on a long adventure ride in BFE and ruin a trip over a battery that is susceptible to water damage. My fault for not doing the research first. I do like the idea of saving 7 lbs. and I would run this battery in a sportbike all day long, but not feeling optimistic about it on the 990, especially where the battery sits down low behind the front tire. I read in a few forum threads that it is not waterproof and you can tell just by looking at it that it won't keep water out. there's an electronic interface on the side to plug in the Shorai charger which I cannot imagine is waterproof. Will post the battery and charger up for sale soon. Thanks.
