I've got Cycle Cat frame sliders on my 1997 Ducati 916 requiring a smaller battery than recommended: LFX14L2-BS12What size and for what bike?
Thanks for the info duc995I've got Cycle Cat frame sliders on my 1997 Ducati 916 requiring a smaller battery than recommended: LFX14L2-BS12
However, the smaller than stock conventional battery that it replaced had like 100 CCA...barely enough to dependably start the bike (especially when cold). This lithium battery has more than double the CCA!
I have heard mixed reports but finally pulled the trigger because of the much higher CCA capacity for the size (due to the frame sliders the available space was fixed and limited).
"not good" isn't really accurate- parasitic draw (like the immobilizer on my 749) negates the minimal self-discharge rate benefit over substantial periods of time when the bike is just sitting.I read that these lithium batteries are not good with bikes that have parasitic draws. I assume that security systems qualify as parasitic, any thoughts on this?
You can drop 10 lbs of body weight in 2 weeks if you tried......FREE. I had issues with the Shorai LFX18. It kept shutting itself down, some sort of stress sensor was triggered. They sent me a second one which had this internal protection circuit removed but it still would occasionally shut the electrical system down. I would have to reset my clock.Never noticed a difference in starting speed, but I dropped @10lbs easilly by switching out for a Li battery!
