    Report on Shorai lithium battery

    I have been trying to ride as often as possible for the last month. Rain has blocked me way more than usual.
    However, I did install a new Shorai battery when my riding season started and the bike is an easy start at temperatures around +1 C. The battery spins the engine quickly and yesterday after sitting for ten days in the rain the starter motor had the engine running as quickly as I could get my thumb off the starter button.
    I am sold on Shorai lithium batteries.

    Great! I like reading reviews of tried and true products. I'm going to make me a dummy note to order one when I'm ready....

    I've had mine in the TW and my Honda for two and three years, no issues.

    Working perfect so far but only had it a few months. Ask me again in a few years.

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe the Battery Tender brand has built in over and under voltage regulation. Might be a good idea to research this option.

    Yes, it is smaller, and lighter:

    The Shorai comes with foam blocks to take up the extra space.

    The battery tender i bought came with foam spacers also. The stock battery I took out weighed 6.6 pounds the BT battery weighed 1.1 pounds.

    I have a Shorai in my TW and my Ducati. They really do work great but my only gripe is on cold mornings i have had to let the battery "warm up" a little(let the bike sit w power on) before it will crank the motor over. This is more of an issue on the Ducati than the TW.
    Pair of 2006 TW's modded to the hilt and a Ducati Multistrada.

    Put your high beams and flashers on when you need to warm the battery up in cold weather, works a little faster.
