Awesome battery. It is so light that it doesn't seem real. Starts bike great every time. You will need a lithium charger though, but still very worth it. Now I need one for all of my other bikes

This battery is much smaller than my regular battery and came with NO blocks to make up for the space. Also, it's my opinion that the lithium ion battery disagrees with the computer in BMW motorcycles. Although the CCA was rated higher than my normal battery, it would not start the bike after a full charge.
Where has this battery been all of my life. Works great spins my ZXR 1100 over like crazy.
Having trouble with battery/bike combination. Installed in Suzuki DR400.
After riding long enough for the battery to recharge, apparently it is overcharging because bike display starts flashing and if shut off, nothing works - just like a blown main fuse but fuse is good. Unhook battery for a little while, hook it back up and everything works again. Am impressed with cranking power but not with the other. Bike never has done this before until this battery.
First I was amazed at how small and light this battery is. I first put it on a deltran lithium battery tender and to my suprise it was fully charged. The screws are a little smaller than my lead acid battery screws but with the supplied washers I did not find it made a difference in relation to the hole in my cables. There was plenty of contact and they tightened without any issues. I have taken several rides and the battery has functioned as intended. I took some voltage measurements when idling and I was at 13.58v. My bike is a 1993 FZR1000 with 27k. I live in the northeast so when the Temps get bellow 45-50 I will take it out and keep it in the house as a lithium this small does not like the cold from my understanding.
Who knew something so small was so strong. This battery performed every time I needed it to. The battery was also half the size of what I currently owned. Great weight saving product.
This battery starts my quad faster than it ever has before! Very light weight. Don't know how long it going to hold up but it is great so far.
At the beginning of this season, to my dismay, my ever reliable (5 year old) BikeMaster TruGel battery decided to no bueno me a couple weeks before a planned ride. I'm usually the last kid on my block to buy necessary parts to keep my '06 ZX636 running; call it being a cheapskate or just an aversion to buying things that aren't as sexy. With my current predicament, it was time to bite the bullet and buy a battery since I don't have any friends to help push start my ride whenever I have a hankering to hit the open road or do a quick jaunt to the local Starbucks.
Enter the Battery Tender Lithium Engine Start Battery. This thing is significantly lighter and ~40% smaller than my old battery. If I were predispositioned, I could even fit a Hot Pocket in the newly created space to slowly cook throughout the day during a ride, then pop it out to reward myself for a job well done at hitting the twisties (as I pat myself on the back for not getting any tickets). Oh.. yes.. I popped the battery in and the bike started, no hassle, no fuss. Get one!
Battery handles all my bikes needs. I do lots of running around on my bike and it's electric start only. This battery never fails to crank. Much lighter than stock.
This battery has worked great since it was delivered. The MV needs a little more cold cranking amps then average so I was a little worried it would pull too much power. However, the first ride I accidentally left the AC on when I got home and drained the battery below starting power. Jumped it, rode about 5 miles up the road for gas and shut it off praying it would start - cranked like a champ without issue. I'm sold.
When I opened this battery for my 05 Yamaha R1,I knew they were small and lightweight, but I was shocked at how small. This thing is half the size of the factory battery and can't weigh more than about 1.5 lbs.Spins my starter with more urgency than the 235 dollar Yuasa I replaced, and for less than half the price. Battery voltage does not even sag at idle with the brights on. Comes with high density foam blocks to fit to the battery compartment.
This battery was purchased for my track bike that sat in the garage for ~10 months. I picked up this little guy when I was ready to go to the track again. Best choice I could have made IMO. The quad terminal configuration made it easy to drop right in and the extra stick on pads made sure it stayed put. (it is significantly smaller and lighter than the previous battery) It says that they ship it with 75% charge, but that was plenty to start my crossplane R1 that needs a lot of CCAs.
In short, I will definitely get another for my next bike and I have already recommended these to plenty of people.
