Your right, I read the same thing. I'll go about 5 years on a battery after that I figure its on borrowed time. If I stay local, I'll stretch it a bit, but if I'm going on a trip, I'll change it out. Got 2 more years on this one, I'll be looking at the lithium also. I can always use the tender on the antique cage.Wait another year and Lithium battery prices will come down. Like all new gotta have it items. Plus I understand you need a different battery tender, may be wrong on this.
Read the information, Batteries run about $229.00-$259.00. Estimated to last approximately 8-10 years. Charger provided with purchase. Initially sounds pricy, but if it last that long it may be well worth the price.
:thumbsupJust ordered a set of Taylor Motorcycle battery cables . #2 gauge ought to do it seeing as how MOCO put #8 gauge on from the factory . Using star lock-washers and battery sealer on all connections will insure the starter gets FULL VOLTAGE from this new 500CCA LIGHTNING battery . Should deliver instant starts first time every time for a long time !
