This battery really impressed me. Which says alot for a battery It is lead free so it is considerably lighter than the stock battery. It also has great starting power. Kicked my bike right over. I'm done with the old batteries. This is the only battery I will be purchasing from now on. Thank you Motosport for the great service!.

Shorai LFX batteries come in a variety of case shapes and sizes, capacity options, and right / left polarity options, for the best possible fitment. If the LFX is slightly smaller than the original battery in one dimension or another, high-density, adhesive-backed foam sheets are included in the package. These can be trimmed and applied to the battery box in minutes, to make a solid fit, and will also provide added thermal and vibration insulation. Cable connections can be made either at tops or sides of the terminals. All these options and sizes allow Shorai LFX to offer a "drop-in" installation for most powersports vehicles. When you open a LFX battery package you will also find terminal screws and a set of spares, Shorai decals in various sizes, and the user manual.

Important notes: Due to changes in shipping regulations, the Shorai battery will arrive at approximately 30% charged; it will need to be fully charged before initial use and maintained normally for the life of the battery. LFX batteries are NOT for use with a battery charger / tender that has an automatic "desulfation mode" which cannot be disabled. Shorai has consulted with Deltran, manufacturer of the "Battery Tender" brand, and has confirmed their products do NOT have a desulfation mode, and therefore are OK for use with Shorai's LFX Lithium-Iron Batteries. The most suitable charger / tender for Shorai's LFX Lithium-Iron Batteries is the Shorai LFX Lithium-Iron Battery Charger / Maintainer (SHO-BMS01), which is sold separately. See Shorai's website or included instructions for more information about charging procedures and for more detailed warranty information.
Have not installed yet it checks out at 13.1 volts right out the box I hope it can hang with my big bore Trx450 er has good warranty light weight
Dropping off ~15lbs with my old BMW Gel battery with a 3lbs battery is like the difference with a full tank of gas vs. nearly empty. The bike is more flickable with much less high center of gravity weight on my BMW R1150RT & R1100S.
When I received this battery I was in awe. Not only does it weight a fraction of the original battery, it also starts my bike on the first try. I have only had this for a little over two weeks, but i expect this to last well beyond 1 year like most batteries.
The battery is a tad smaller than stock dimensionally, but Shorai gives you plenty of high density foam to pack the battery into the bikes battery compartment. The weight savings is amazing. I was worried about cold weather performance, but it started my KLR 650 up with no problems in 30 degree weather. Thumbs up.
Great battery! Small and light. The battery comes with packing material that you have to use to fill in the extra space in your battery box due to this battery being significantly smaller than OEM battery. The plug for the optional charger makes keeping the battery ready to go super easy!
I put this on my TRX450ER to replace the factory battery. It is much lighter and noticeably smaller. The foam adhesive panels that come with the battery make getting a perfect fit in almost any battery box a breeze! It is noticeably stronger and spins the bike over much quicker when starting. It's expensive, but very nice!
I bought this product cause it had a very good rating in magazine..i never thought i would need it after my oem battery died in under 2 years use..this batter is about 2# compaired to your oem 10# so u loose 8 pounds of wieght..lol its for the folks want the light makes right for your ride..not too many products like it can loose that much for so little price..dont forget to buy the charger with it..like peanut butter and jelly
