I ran a Shorai LFX 18 battery in my 990 SMT which worked fine until it would no longer turn the engine over. After discussing the problem with Shorai, they did replace the battery with a new unit under warranty. Note that the 18 Ah rating, as already mentioned, is greatly exaggerated.

I have used the Shorai LFX 12 battery in my Beta dual sport bike and it was no longer functioning after about a year. I have had much better success with 5 Ah TurnTech batteries in my dirt bikes. Currently over six years in my '08 KTM HTR 350 XCF-W and still going strong; eight years in my '04 KTM 540 EXC and still going strong with the current owner of the bike.
