Happy to give some feed back but context might help.

What bike do you have?
What battery are you running now?
What are you after? (saving weight, more power, lasting longer between replacements, other?)
What has your current experience been with this bike and past batteries? if applicable...
Any other info you feel might help out...


FYI: I am not wanting to chaise you away but this section is about trials bikes/riding not trail bikes so you could also ask this question in the thumpers section and maybe someone with the same bike might have some practical experience with some of the battery options as well...

With the limited information here (not knowing the year of your bike etc.) I would think a Shorai LiFePO4 LFX Battery LFX18A1 would work, as it fits a 2011 DR650. I have had quite a few friends use the Shorai batteries and they have had good luck with them.

Note: Everyone I know that uses one picked up a proper battery tender for this type of battery...

Good luck.

Hi Jonnyc,

I'm wondering if you can give me some advise as well.
In regards of your questions, I have a KTM 1190 R. I'm running the stock one, I'm after having a "piece of mind" on the road with all the items plug on it such GPS, LED'S, I phone and be able to charge the intercoms and computer if need to.
