Put an SBK battery in my Superlight. 1.5 lbs instead of 8.75lbs. Cheapest way to shave 7+ lbs off at about $250. Here's the link:

Connection to bike is clunky, but it works. The battery comes with leads and eyelets attached, so you have to bolt it to the existing leads on the bike, then either tape it for insulation (yuk!) or shrink wrap around the bolts (what I did). It would be a lot cleaner if the SBK had terminals like other batteries so you could just bolt the existing leads to the unit. I asked them and they said they wanted a 'universal' battery that would work in all things. I guess.

Only issue is, I get my battery warning light coming on at idle sporadically, sometimes (-1000 rpm). Anybody else experience this?
