Sure there's something out there but it has to be in the minority, unless my internet skills aren't as good as I thought.

Was there anything in particular that was bad about them? Just saying I'd like some warning if it's prone to exploding and igniting my balls or something like that.

Mainly just poor reliability.

Quote Lithium batteries also are prone to explode - just ask Samsung!

If a Lithium or any other battery doesn't give you an almost instantaneous start then you have others issues more pressing to address.

I'm afraid too many people have swallowed the old wives tales regarding batteries and the benefits of trickle chargers.

Times move on,I was a little hesitant to go the Lithium route but decided 'what the hell,give it a go'

Trust me,there is no need for a half ton lead acid weighing down your bike

Perhaps the earth is flat after all . Hmm Confused
Well said 👍. I have  a Shido on my factory and it is coming to nearly four years old,  it seems no different to when it was new.  Another thing i like about them is if you kept doing successive starts it will keep turning the engine at the same speed and then stop,  unlike lead acid where it would labor and risk the sprag.  Tbh  there is so many advantages to the Lithium,  i would never go back to a lead acid. 
When disconnected they can hold a charge up to 3 years.
The Shido batteries come with 3 years waranty,  not many lead acid come with that. It is time to move on 😂😂😂

Lead acid batteries are hardly any cheaper for a good brand. I have been using lithium batteries for 4 years and I'll never go back to the old tech !

Yep, all we are doing is swapping from the use of one limited resource to an even scarcer one!

Anyone using lithium with an alarm? Parasitic drain and all that.

I know I should remove mine and do plan to. Paranoid of it going missing though, been putting it off.

I've got a Shido lithium ready to go in.
Question everything.

No alarm,just the standard Gen2 immobiliser which I assume must draw some small amount of current?

Not sure how that would compare drain wise compared with an aftermarket alarm.

Looking forward to the next track day

Rick get an Abas disc lock,  it is a bit expensive,  but it has a great alarm built into it and also remembers what angle it was when it was locked, so impossible to drive off with it on.  You can't freeze them cut them.  The only thing is them are a bit heavy 👍
