 Shorai Lithium Battery LFX18A1-BS12
Shorai Lithium Battery LFX18A1-BS12
Shorai LFX Lithium Iron Battery LFX18A1-BS12 Shorai LFX Lithium motorcycle batteries are some of the lightest and most powerful replacement batteries available. Most powersports enthusiasts have gotten used to hooking up a tender to their lead-acid batteries, all the time. Shorai LFX have a much slower self-discharge than the best lead acid batteries (1/6 to 1/7, on average), they do not sulfate as capacity drops, and they are the ultimate deep cycle battery. This means that they can still crank your vehicle even if the remaining capacity is quite low. A fully charged LFX can sit for a year or more and still retain adequate starting capacity, without damaging the battery. As such, any vehicle which has no current flowing when the key is OFF should not need a tender. At most this battery only needs to be charged every 6 to 12 months, depending on the use and average storage temperature. Newer vehicles may have a significant draw even when the key is OFF, to maintain clocks and computers, etc. In this case Shorai expects that a few hours of riding per month will be all that is needed to avoid tending. If you know that you will go a number of weeks or months without riding, you can either attach a tender, or disconnect the negative cable from the battery. In any case, during storage you may use the voltage chart above and an accurate voltmeter, and consider recharging when the battery is around the 50 capacity remaining mark, or above. Features: Faster cranking for better starts Ultra light- one fifth the weight of lead-acid batteries on average Holds unloaded charge for one year without maintenance Zero sulfation for longer service life Super-fast recharge rate No explosive gasses during charge, no lead, no acid Military spec carbon composite case Multiple terminal connection options Includes adhesive back foam sheets Factory activated Environmentally friendly 2 year warranty Specs: 12 V- Volts 270 CCA- Cold Cranking Amps 18 Ah- Amp Hours 18 A Max Charge Rate Weight: 2.19 lbs/0.997 kg Case Size 1: 66mm/2.6 x 148mm/5.83 x 105mm/4.13 See Shorai Specs PDF below for full fitment guide Battery Terminal Location: Notes: It is extremely important that you use only the appropriate battery for your bike. A battery with incorrect amperage may damage the battery and your bike. Shorai Batteries require a charging system output of 13.1 Volts or higher at idle and must not exceed 15.2 volts at maximum output. Shorai Batteries may not be a drop in replacement for all bikes, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. RevZilla recommends testing and charging all batteries prior to using. Shorai recommends NOT using a charger or tender if it has a desulfation mode which cannot be turned off. Shorai has confirmed that the Battery Tender brand does NOT have a desulfation mode and are OK for use with Shorai LFX batteries. However the best possible charger/tender for the Shorai LFX is the Shorai SHO-BMS01 Battery Management System .

The size is amazing. My only challenge was how to best cut up the foam inserts to keep the battery from moving around. I'm using it for a Vespa LX150 and it works great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

AGV Diesel Hi-Jack Helmet The Italian jeans company Diesel has teamed up with Italian helmet manufacturer AGV to produce a line of designer helmets. Diesel takes the helmet company in a different direction to their typical racing fare. The helicopter pilot style Hi-Jack helmet is dedicated to fans of customized equipment and riders who love life on the road while wishing to remain in line with the unconventional Diesel style. The attractive look, the range of chromatic variations in the graphics, and the unmistakable curve at the sides develop the aeronautic design that inspires the Hi-Jack helmet even further. The helmet is completed by the concealable visors in different tints that let the helmet be adapted to the needs and style of each and every rider and make his or her look even more decisive and rebellious. The AGV Diesel Hi-Jack was inspired from the world of helicopter pilots, it is intended to those who want an original helmet that does not remain unnoticed. The seductive look, the graphic colors, and the side curved parts accentuate the new aerospace design that inspired that helmet. This helmet features a retractable face shield, also available in smoke and iridium silver versions, which allows to adapt its usage to the motorcyclist style and requirements.

The quality is excellent. The visor works perfectly. The chin strap is easy to use -- takes a bit of work to adjust, but once it is set, it stays. Which is what you want.
The color combination makes you visible to drivers. Like that there is not a lot of branding and crazy graphics. Looks smart.
Follow AGV sizing guidelines. I had a perfect fit the first time. Comes with a very cool helmet bag. Has a shoulder strap and snap buttons at the opening. Could use the bag for shopping, etc.
If you are looking for a quality, open face helmet with visor (a must have to keep wind, dust out of your eyes) this is it.
My only design recommendations would be 1) to have a gradated visor (dark to clear) for riding in low sun conditions. May just add a dark tint strip at the top. 2) some venting at the top/back to cool your head. Minor issue.
Yes, I recommend this product.
