Antigravity for the XR650L


I just received the YTZ10-8 that you sent for my XR650L. Even in the OEM case size it's incredibly light - a full 4 1/2 pounds lighter than the original AGM unit.

I replaced the factory regulator / rectifier with a Shindengen MOSFET unit last year in anticipation of doing the battery this spring. The original R/R was charging the old battery at almost 15 volts - within factory specs but too high I was told for AGM let alone LiFePO4 units. The new R/R holds a steady 14.4 volts from idle upwards, hopefully no more than what this new battery likes to see as a charging voltage.
