Beware of Lithium

Comments about Shorai LiFePO4 LFX Battery LFX18A1:
The lightweight battery is much different than lead-acid type batteries and must be treated with different care. Some warnings that came in the box: never leave any electrical device on without the bike running for too long, always ensure your electrical system does not charge over 14v, and never put on a battery tender that is not made for LiFePO4. The battery does not come with any balance circuits to ensure it won't break down from use. These batteries are temperamental.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased one of these for my KTM 990 Adventure Dakar and was amazed by the reduction in weight from stock. It is also very nice that there is no dangerous acid in the motorcycle battery. Lead acid batteries are centuries-old technology and it is time we upgraded to something new. This technology is still in the begining stages for motorcycles but has been used in other areas for several years so I am giving it a try.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Use as Instructed, Good Sportbike Choice
from San Antonio, TX
Had for 2 years in a 05 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R with no problems. Standard Batttery Tender will work as mine's rate is 14.4 volts charging. Shorai recommends 14.8 volts maximum. Cranks motor faster than a lead-acid battery fully-charged (recommended factory battery). I have had no cold-weather usage problems, has always cranked the engine even with 10W/50 oil. Cruiser's, off-roader's, quad's and the like may wish to stay with lead-acid units, weigh the benefits for each type of use. Always follow the Shorai recommendations.
Had for a long time, starts up instantly
i've had this now for a long time, no issues. very light. started stronger than my old yuasa
