Replacement Battery

Just thought I'd ask for opinions... time to replace the 1098 battery. Was wondering what others were choosing? Last time I replaced the R1 battery, I went with a sealed Tru-Gel, from Bikemaster. AGMs are expensive,,...and I see there are numerous Lithium-Ion choices now. Thanks in advance.

Spend the extra money and go with Shorai. You will not be disappointed and you will have a smile when you realize the weight difference. Don't be cheap with your baby.

My 1198 battery went dead last year. Stepped up and went with a Shorai. Its lightweight, compact and has incredible starting power. It puts conventional batteries to shame. Shorai is current technology, original batteries are 1940's tech....

Expensive but definitely worth it. I am very satisfied with mine.

Lot of suggestion for Shorai, so far. Although I've heard/read some concerns about Lithium reliability......or overheating. Other comments, if possible? I appreciate it all. Thank you.

+1 on the Shorai, most of us have been to and crossed the bridge you are at.

I don't think you'll find many if any bad reviews for Shorai

+a gazzillion for the Shorai. The Battery Tender battery mentioned in this thread is a 14Ah battery putting out 240cca where as the Shorai is an 18Ah battery putting out 270cca. Nothing wrong with the Battery Tender brand battery but the Shorai has more reserve power and cold cranking amps.

Lithium batteries got a bit of a bat rap when they first came out due to the use of lithium ion cells as used in hobby application and they were prone to heat failure. The current automotive/motorcycle batteries use lithium ferrous or lithium iron cells which are stable and can take a bit of heat.
