  • This item is considered hazardous material. Orders containing this product will ship ground only and cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, or US Territories.

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.

  • Ultra light. One fifth the weight of equivalent lead-acid batteries on average.
  • Zero sulfation, for longer service life.
  • Holds unloaded charge for one year without maintenance.
  • Military-spec carbon composite case.
  • Faster cranking for better starts.
  • Super-fast recharge rate.
  • No explosive gasses during charge, no lead, no acid.
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • Limited three-year warranty!

Specifications:

  • Model: LFX24L3-BS12.
  • 24Ah PbEq 12V eq, "L" polarity, Case Type 3.
  • Weight (grams): 2123.
  • Cranking CCA (A): 360.
  • Weight (pounds): 4.68.
  • Terminal Polarity: - / +.

Important note: 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.

Less weight, more cranking power = good times!!!

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.

Best Battery Purchase Ever

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.

No regrets

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!

Strong little battery

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!

How much better is this compared to a stock OEM ? I've had my 2014 yfz450r 6 months and the battery died on me just a few days ago?
I'm looking for a good aftermarket battery

The biggest advantage of the Shorai LFX Lithium-Iron Battery is the weight savings over stock! Most will have a higher CCA rating only than stock.

Yes, I had the same problem on my TRX450ER. Dead cells that just flop over from one ride to the next although I have my battery tender on it in between. Went with Shorai and never looked back. I have been phasing out my batteries on all my powersports toys with Shorai.

Is there anyway I can fit this battery on my 2009 kx250f?

The Kawasaki KX250F motocross bike does not have a battery stock on the bike. With enough fabrication you could make this work on any machine. Depending on what you are trying to do with the bike, there may be better products for you.
