Ballistic Performance 8 Cell EVO2 Battery The 8 Cell EVO2 model is our primary product. The 8 Cell model will work with everything from 450cc MX bikes to 1000cc multi-cylinder motorcycles. This battery is robust, impact resistant, water resistant, and has more starting punch than 90 of all the powersports lead-acid batteries available. Most motorcycles in this range use an OEM battery that weighs up to 10.7lbs. The 8 Cell Ballistic Performance Components EVO2 Battery weighs a little over 1.5lbs. That is a weight savings of 9.3lbs for less than 160! If your powersports vehicle has a modified motor or operates in extreme conditions then we would recommend upgrading to the 12 Cell for added durability. Dimensions 112MM (L) x 60MM (W) x 103MM (H) Measured from top of terminal Available with the Negative Terminal on the Right or Left Weight 825 grams (1.81 lb) Voltage (Charged) 13.6V Amperage 15 Pbeq A/H Cold Cranking Amps 275 CCA Operating Environment -18C (0F) to 60C (140F) Typical Applications 1000cc and under multi-cylinder motorcycles and 450cc singles. Note Ballistic Batteries may not be a drop in replacement, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. See Ballistic / Yuasa Comparison charts below for detailed measurements and weights. Your powersports vehicle is the pinnacle of modern technology. It is made with the latest lightweight, high tech materials to be the most high performance vehicle on the road, lake, track or trail. You have modified your powersports vehicle with the best in carbon fiber, titanium, and magnesium in an effort to gain every last ounce of performance. Yet, under your seat is a heavy hunk of lead that was designed in the mid 1800s. Ballistic Performance Component Batteries use the latest, state of the art lithium ferrous energy storage technology available to provide you with a smaller, lighter, higher energy battery. Each Ballistic Performance Component Battery is assembled by hand in the USA using computer designed custom proprietary cells, cases, and hardware. As a result, Ballistic Performance Component Batteries will provide more energy out of a smaller package while requiring almost no regular maintenance and under most conditions a longer service life than existing lead acid batteries. Up to 80 smaller than the stock battery Up to 10lbs Lighter than the stock battery Service life of over twice a lead acid in similar conditions Industry leading 3 year warranty Designed, developed, and assembled in the USA Hard mounted brass terminals for a direct replacement installation Completely dry technology so batteries can be mounted in any direction Non-toxic, recyclable Applications for powersports vehicles from 50cc - 1800cc Tested extensively by professional race teams Impact and water resistant Works with the orignial equipment charging system No trickle charger required, loses only 10 of charge over a year of static use

I went with the recommendations by the ballistic website for my bike and I'm pleased with the acquisition this far. Don't have to worry about placing on a battery tender, fluid spill etc. comes with foam padding that can be used to fill up the extra space left due to the small dimensions of this battery and also decrease vibration. The fact that it's superlight and has a warranty helps too ;)

bikes used - '06 Yamaha YZF R6 ; '08 CBR 600 RR
front pressure - cold 29psi ; hot of the track 31
rear pressure -cold 28 ; hot of the track 30/31
haven't used them for street purposes [BT 016 were my choice for that] . the 003RS is a great tire for beginner/ intermediate track day purposes - good feel/ grip/ longevity. [the grips obviously don't match a DOT/ slick "race" tire especially at high temps / very fast pace ]
the front grip / feel is good for my pace. gentle / graded turn-in characteristic but tracks the corner very well [and is confidence inspiring]
the rear grip is also very good [except for very hot days / track temp when it can get slightly greasy] . good edge grip levels / predictable slides.
a front lasts at least 6-7 days depending on the track and the rear lasts 4-5 days. warms up very quickly in a lap or so[ i don't use warmers ]
haven't used it in the wet and so can't comment on it [so I've rated it as middle of the road average]
all in all > excellent tires for the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.
