Re: Shorai Lithium Battery

A few guys over on the ADVRider site are trying them...

It's my understanding that it doesn't take much for them to break....

They may have that figured out by now though..

Give one a try... Let us know what you think...

Re: Shorai Lithium Battery

I know they are expensive (for just a try). Some folks on the Triumph forum have found that they do not work well in cold weather.

Re: Shorai Lithium Battery

I try and stay updated on the new battery entries and you always here conflicting reports...it kind of confuses me.

But with time, I'm sure it will come out in the wash.

...Nice specs though

They're competitive with Odessey on price (expensive).
Batteries Plus store manager says he's not carrying them till proven.
Manager has friend with a K1300 running a Shorai and he has trouble when HOT with battery not starting the bike.

SO; Shorai problems HOT and COLD mean I will stick with Odessey.

I've got a 2006 Odyessey PC680MJ that I replaced as preventive maintance on my LT before going to CCR Boise that I put into my Kawazaki Mule and it's still working fine.
