My Shorai crapped out in less than a year. Their prorated warranty pissed me off. They would only offer a reconditioned unit as a replacement. No more of my money will go to that company.

I still use the chinee batteries. Replace them every couple years. I've been burned too many times by these specialty batteries.

I put an Anti Gravity in my too lightly used 990R a couple of days ago. I had one in my 1150 Adventure. It worked at stupid cold. The stock BMW battery is a POS, and will barely turn the starter over below 40 degrees F.

990 Adventure- the Shorai required minimal shimming to fit- not sure of the model. Used in Colorado for 3 season riding. Old BMW charger that came with my '92 GS and was approved for use in charging the POS Shorai

Odyssey PC 310 deal

Hi Guys
Been years since I posted.....
Just replaced a battery on my 950, and found a deal for the Odyssey on www.apexbattery.com that seems pretty good. It's 120.00 right now and if you use the coupon code "th5" you can get an extra 5% off of that. Also, the shipping is pretty cheap and the service (so far) was great.
Just thought you might like to know.....

Mitch
