    I know bateries have been done to death on here and i have read as many posts as i could find. But....



    I am looking at a new battery for my hollow mod, currently using a daytona battery lesser i want to swop out for a Battery so i can use my electric start.



    I want to keep the hollow look and dont want to compromise the space of the battery compartment if possible. I have been looking at the lithium Ion batteries now available.



    I came across the RB120010 made by a company called racing-batteries. I also saw the posts on here about the shorai LFX09L2-BS12 battery wich has been discussed on here (http://www.shoraipower.com/s-78565-TW200.aspx)

    (www.racing batteries.co.uk) .



    I was almost set to buy the Shoral battery but the size was just a little to big for my current battery box. Then i came across the RB120010. There seem to be a few companies around making these slightly smaller batteries desined for racing bikes that are not using much electrics once running, but require high cranking capacities.



    From what i understand Lithium ion's have large cranking capacities and are able to deliver large currents for short periods.

    The only problem i can see is they look like they have a lower capacity? I contacted the manufacturer of Racing-batteries and he said the battery would suit my needs fine.

    I thought somone here might have an idea if i am missing somthing as the specs say it is only 2.3Ah, surley that is too low?

    I am only running lights and indicators ever. With the battery lesser the generator seems to keep up with this task. Does the generator make enough to keep up with this task and charge the battery aswell? Is capacity an isue with a bike running on a magneto? As long as it is not running extra electrical systems? Am i right in assuming it wont draw more than the generator can deliver so battery capacity is not to important?

    I belive the standard TW battery has a capacity of 7A/h? I am afraid of running the new battery low and damaging it. Am i missing somthing important here?



    Does anyone know the minimum requirment of the TW for capacity? before i go beliving the salesmans word and fork out for a firwork to put under my arse.



    Cheers

    The battery lesser is used when you completely take the battery off the bike. Funny how Japanese just butcher the english language. Don't go believing any salesman period. They are hustling to make a sale. GT4B-5 AGM Maintenance Free Battery Length:4.45"Width:1.5"Height:3.35" Height:3.35" 2.3Ah is enough. This is what the people in Japan have been using.

    Thanks for the Tip, will save me a ton of money. That AGM battery is about the same size as the Lithium i was looking at, but much cheaper, not sure what the advantage of an expensive Litium is realy for my application other than higher CCA. They sell Yuasa here in Thailand too under the name GS i think. Will try to find one.

    Cheers
