It cranks the bike faster than anything else I've tried as the article says, never needs to go on the trickle charger, and weighs about 1 1/2 lbs. Incredible. No, I don't work for them!
Glad to hear a secondary report on the Shorai. I still can't get over what it's like to pick up an LFX, as it feels like an empty display case rather than a powerful and long-lasting battery.

Or the "Least Likely to Outlast Warranty" catagory.

Thanks for the reply Kevin. I'm an avid reader of motorcycle.com and did read your ninja/cbr 250 comparison earlier. Keep up the great work!

I'd just like to thank MO for ignoring Buz's suggestion to name the 883 Sportster Iron the "Best Bike for Sequential Hermaphrodites."
