AntiGravity batteries

Does anyone discount these batteries. The one that is recommended for my bike is $469.00. Yikes !

I don't know how long these have been around, but for the price I don't think the cost justifies any benefit.

Are they compatible with the charging system in the bike?!?
Seems like lithium chemistry wants a completely different
charging strategy than lead-acid and stock regulator certainly
isn't prepared to handle that...

I would suspect they add some kind of circuitry in the case to make compatible the charging system and to prevent overcharge since improperly charging a lithium can make bad things happen. Can't for the life of me see a manufacturer taking the risk of not doing something like this.

Not sure why they would recommend a 720cca battery either.

Wow! How many regular batterys you can buy. And life span on each. To vrs that batterys cost? " I can buy standard 4-5 batterys for the price of that one".

I hear you, but a standard battery is having a hard time firing up my 124. I would rather have reserve cranking power than not enough. Get's pretty embarrassing, when your hot rod bike won't start well.

Look carefully at the cell count in the battery (i.e. the series count,
not the total cell count) and calculate the required charge voltage...
Does it come close to what the stock regulator is set for and is it
compatible with the ECU (i.e. will the ECU report over/under
voltage all the time)? And, if the battery is chronically undercharged
(as a result of the regulator setpoint being too low for the battery)
you won't see the CCA you are looking for...

What are those? Kidding. Yes, I do have compression releases.

Li batt

what are the dimensions of your battery box ? L x W x H
Lithium battery suppliers use differant rated cells, thus their packs have to be bigger (more cells inside ) to get the desired cranking power.
