Default 08' later cbr1000rr battery

For those who are tired of the 130cca Yuasa barely starting their 08' later cbr1000rr check out the Shorai LFX14L2-BS12 with 210cca. This battery if you can believe it is smaller than the stock and also lighter. With the supplied foam to install and make a snug fit this battery is great. Starts the bike better than it ever has and is supposed to last longer than the 2 1/2 year Yuasa I just took out (which in my opinion is poor life). Priced at $159.95 instead of the Yuasa $129.99 I think it is a good deal for the performance and life expectancy. Check the pics

Perhaps the best part is that it knocks 3.11 lbs off - stock battery when I weighed it was 4.61 lbs - the Shorai was 1.50 lbs.

Not sure which battery is in my bike right now, got it just a few days ago, but I took it to Honda because I thought the battery was dying and I didn't want to be stranded somewhere. He started it up, checked it and everything, said it was in great shape, ran strong. Also mentioned he was confused because it was an even smaller battery than stock. Thanks for posting this, I'll have to take a look and check out if the previous owner actually did something good to the bike.
