Considering how important a battery is for your bike, I'd say that's a pretty small bill to pay.

Just bought mine. it weighs almost as much as your cellphone. lol.
But get the charging cable unit for it if you can. unless you ride your bike all the time.

I read about these but heard some scary "my battery caught fire and burnt my house down" stories.. I don't know if that's bs though I have no experience with them just hear they last a very long time and weigh almost nothing as mentioned above.



I also agree $160 is penneys compared to the cost of the bike and mods and I would pay $160 for a $160 battery BUT..... Don't wana pay 160 for a battery worth 60-80$

Batteries plus. I use the odyssey dry-cell battery. it's like $108 or something and has a non-prorated 3 year replacement warranty

Is the lithium battery from battery plus lightweight like the shorai? Also does it need those special charging cables if you don't ride often?
