Cranked my VFR1200 just fine both mornings. If fact, yesterday the V4 was acting up a bit after it cut off when I clicked it in gear with the sidestand down. Took some cranking to get it fired back up. That Shorai had no problem turning the big V4 over - repeatedly and fast too. It was 41F.

The sort of low temp some riders are talking about is not likely to be seen often here in Houston. Even then, Shorai recommends you simply turn on the bike with the headlights ON while you are putting on your winter gear. The current draw will warm up the batt and prep it for the starting the engine.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try that next cold morning I ride and see if it makes a difference. Typically I hit the go button right after the fuel pump runs and the guages cycle because I don't want to sit there drawing juice from the battery without it running.

The videos show that they actually self warm the more you draw from them... so it'll crank over stronger and stronger each try in the cold. Or... like ^ said, leaves lights on to draw a little while gearing up

At least that's the sales pitch.
