Antigravity Lithium Battery Problem
*posted this over on the Panigale forum, but figured I'd post it here also to see if you guys had any insight*
Bike is 2013 Panigale S.
I figured I'd go ahead and make the upgrade to lithium. Installed the Antigravity AT7B-BS RE-START battery, and the bike doesn't seem to like it at all. Took it for a ride, and the battery light came on, check engine light and gas light started flashing. Bike would start to idle a little high as well.
As I rode it, all the warnings would go away for a sec, then eventually come back again.
Has anyone experienced this or is this thing just defective? Regardless, I'm returning it and going with another brand considering Antigravity hasn't been much help with responses.
What I've done so far:
Tested Voltage Regulator...checks out fine.
Tested and charged the Lithium Battery with an Optimate291 charger...battery checks out okay?
Put back in the old Lead-Acid battery and all the problems are gone.
