but sometime I do carry a spare battery in case one doesn't have enough amp hours to start G/S on cold trips.
currently running Earth-X ETX36C which weights 3lb 11oz. it's got all sorts of reserve amp hour capacity to deliver huge cranking amps after cold camping.
Shorai LFX 36 has been in R80 G/S for the last year on a long term test. never missed a beat, also delivers huge cranking amps even in cold weather. for Adventure bikes the only LiFePO4 batteries that I can recommend so far, are Earth-X ETX36 and Shorai LFX36.
checking out my lithium motorcycle testing thread ... link in sig.
Earth-X ETX36 next to Shorai LFX36 for size comparison
currently world's most advanced Li-ion charger/tester
