just made BOOOM!


damn thing didn't really worked right from the beginning (it's was pretty much brand new). And no, it's not the wiring, the bike started right up with my battery.

bad thing is, as long as he's still fucking with the KLR, I don't get help on the DR

Must be after-effects from yesterday's Full Moon. After my nice 70 mile ride I park and see something shiny in my rear tire. Sue as hell, mondo diameter nail (or junior railroad spike) leaving a gored out hole that can't be plugged/patched. So much for my Easter riding plans!

Franks studio is right next to the Wedge and he asked me if I'd like to bring my Morini by for a few pics. He's a super nice guy and really knows his stuff.

Duhhh - off course I did! Here's a link to his fb page

He's always on the lookout for old and unusual stuff - so contact him, if you think you have something that fits into his portfolio







so, no pics from the ride back - they can't compete at all....

Hey Jax,

I talked to the owner of the company. He said "that never happened before".

Not entirely sure I believe that...

He did offer to replace it, but I decided maybe we should go with the non-exploding type battery instead.

When they fail its usually worse because the cell in a Shorai battery is just contained in a plastic pouch instead of a pressure vessel that usually contains debris, though not here lol. I have seen some Shorai batteries fail during testing, and they make the most amazing quantity of smoke and melting plastic, though no flames.

P.S. I wouldn't hold this against LiFePO4 chemistry batteries. Lead/acid batteries explode as well, MUCH more violently, and spew acid everywhere when it happens.

Both the batteries in the videos occurred during charging when a spark was created, but it happens while cranking or load testing as well when the internal buss cracks and arcs. Been there, seen it, spent 15 minutes washing acid out of eyes, then my clothes disintegrated and I was naked in an automotive shop, was interesting :)
