Shorai LFX Lithium Battery The Shorai LFX Lithium motorcycle batteries are some of the lightest and most powerful replacement batteries available! See Shorai Specifications and Dimensions data sheet (pdf) for fitment guide and specifications. Most powersports enthusiasts have gotten used to hooking up a tender to their lead-acid batteries, all the time. Shorai LFX have much slower self-discharge than the best lead acid do (1/6 to 1/7, on average), they do not sulfate as capacity drops, and they are the ultimate deep cycle battery, which means that they can still crank your vehicle even if the remaining capacity is quite low. Therefore most riders will not need to use a tender at all. 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 never need a tender. At most it should be charged every 6 to 12 months, depending on the average storage temperature (cool storage is much better for any battery). 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 Ultra light - one fifth the weight of lead-acid batteries on average Zero sulfation for longer service life Holds unloaded charge for one year without maintenance Military spec Carbon Composite Case Faster cranking for better starts Super-fast recharge rate No explosive gasses during charge, no lead, no acid Environmentally friendly Two-Year Warranty! Shorai recommends NOT using a charger/tender if it has an automatic desulfation mode, which cannot be turned off. Shorai has confirmed with Deltran, makers of the Battery Tender brand, that their products do NOT have a desulfation mode, and are therefore OK for use with Shorai LFX. However the best possible charger/tender for Shorai LFX is the Shorai SHO-BMS01 Battery Management System . Case Size 1 148mm length Case Size 2 113mm length Case Size 3 166mm length Case Size 4 148mm length Case Size 5 134mm length Case Size 6 148mm length See Shorai Specifications and Dimensions data sheet (pdf) for fitment guide and specifications. Please Note It is extremely important that you use only the appropriate battery for your bike! A battery with incorrect amperage may damage the battery or worse yet, your ride. Shorai Batteries may not be a drop in replacement, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. If you have any questions about which battery may work for you, please call us at 877-792-9455.

Puma Desmo GTX Boots The Desmo GTX is a performance boot that focuses on versatility, specifically designed for sports riders. Features The Desmo GTX is lined with high quality Gore-Tex material An unparalleled protection/comfort combination The Desmo GTX offers advanced impact protection due to a vast array of features, such as the internal nylon ankle bone protection, it's TPU shin plate, the molded TPU heal counter, the forefoot and heal zinc sliders, and it's additional TPU sliders for maximum protection on the shaft It's comfort level far exceeds what protective sports boots typically offer, with flexible inserts at the heal and forefoot for an easy in-step feel, a rubber gear shifter and pre-molded sockliner to absorb vibration, a water resistant zipper system, and breathable fabric lining In addition to superior protection, the upgraded Desmo GTX boot also has a high-density rubber outsole that provides extra stability, grip and abrasion resistance on the outsole, so you feel at ease when you're hitting high speed maneuvers

boots fitted perfectly right from beginning, like a glove, very comfy even on my wide feet. One downside - be careful drying them after being soaking wet - I had boots wet for 4 days (never had a chance to dry) than they dried on 105F hot day and shrunk one-two sizes down, next few days of riding was nightmare. Used some stretching solution, liking those boots again!!
