Btw, the Shorai BATTERY FINDERS database has been updated as of today. We have fixed the DRZ thing, added a ton of bike models, made the model names drop down A>Z, etc...

MSF Bike batteries

I have one (18ah) on the way for my ST1300. Just been reading these post and started to think this would be great for our MSF training bikes, used heavy in summer, water has to be added several times, than have to set in Michigan winter locked in a storage container without chargers and most likelly with low acid levels. Every year we replace at least 5 to 7 batteries in the fleet of 15 units. The cost would be high to replace, but not in the long run. I will be checking this out.

I learned about another Li-Ion battery company, Mirai Powersports at the motorcycle show in Long Beach this winter and picked one up. So far it's saving me over 11 pounds off my bike and gives me 155 CCA then my stock battery and is expected to last me about three times as long. It's similar to Shorai's, but this company offered a 3-year warranty and better bang for your buck for CCAs per dollar so you might want to check them out.

Questor, these actually hold up better than your lead-acid batteries in cold weather because they get more powerful as you crank it - (check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBfvR1EJJBk)

"You save 6.18 pounds and gain 95 CCA by opting for this replacement model."

Yes, but will it start my big V-twin when camping in wilderness and the temperature drops below 30 over night?

I've heard way to many Lithium horror stories... sounds great when weight savings is your top priority... but reliability is my top priority... so I'm sticking with Yuasa or Deka sealed batteries.

If you can feel a 6.18 pound weight loss off the bottom of one of these 500 pound bikes (just below 30 pounds of gas), you're a better man than I.

Yes, it will start your bike in the extreme cold. Just turn on the ignition and let it "warm up" a bit.

Great battery for the 990.

They have anti-graviatic properties. If you carry enough of them, you have to change to lighter springs.

Interesting the new entry.

However it has to compete with:
Antigravity 1201 at $220
earthX ETX18C at $219 and ETX36C at $349 which is probably the correct one
Shorai LFX18A1 BS12 at $190
Yuasa YTZ14S at $202
GK at $40 from my local store, expected to last one full year, the more is a bonus.

Cheers.
