    "You save 6.18 pounds and gain 95 CCA by opting for this replacement model."

    Yes, but will it start my big V-twin when camping in wilderness and the temperature drops below 30 over night?

    I've heard way to many Lithium horror stories... sounds great when weight savings is your top priority... but reliability is my top priority... so I'm sticking with Yuasa or Deka sealed batteries.

    If you can feel a 6.18 pound weight loss off the bottom of one of these 500 pound bikes (just below 30 pounds of gas), you're a better man than I.

    Yes, it will start your bike in the extreme cold. Just turn on the ignition and let it "warm up" a bit.

    Great battery for the 990.

    I like mobil 1. I have a Li/iron. I carry a PPS for cold weather. Light and reliable.

    They have anti-graviatic properties. If you carry enough of them, you have to change to lighter springs. :rofl

    However it has to compete with:
    Antigravity 1201 at $220
    earthX ETX18C at $219 and ETX36C at $349 which is probably the correct one
    Shorai LFX18A1 BS12 at $190
    Yuasa YTZ14S at $202
    GK at $40 from my local store, expected to last one full year, the more is a bonus.

    Cheers.

    Yeah that was my point. Didn't really want to start another "This or that lithium battery is the greatest" debate.

    Plus he over rated the capacity.
