    Is anyone using a lithium battery?

    Just wondering what you're using and how it fits in the battery box. Most of what I see shows them being smaller than the factory battery. I'd rather have a bigger lithium battery so it actually fits, and has extra capacity.

    Also wondering what it's like to live with one. If they have any weird quirks or characteristics.

    I've never used them in anything other than my power tools. I'm pretty sure I will need to get a different battery charger for them versus all my other regular AGM and lead acid batteries.

    Just bought a lithium battery and it came with quite a few pieces of high density foam. One side of each piece of foam had adhesive on it so that it could be used as a filler in the battery box and stick/stay in place.

    Do you have a link to what you bought? Did you weigh the old vs new?

    It is the Tusk brand from Rocky Mountain ATVMC. It is already installed and didn’t weigh the difference but it seems significantly lighter.

    Has anybody with an ABS bike fitted supermoto wheels with ABS rings. Did the ABS work correctly afterwords or did it throw a code?

    So I've been trying to help a buddy install LED turn signals on his 2017 CRF250L. The short version goes like this: after a lot of dicking around trying to make things work, the rear turn signals do not work at all when we have the front LED signals connected. If we connect a non-LED front turn signal, the rears work as well. But despite our best efforts, nothing works if we try to make both the front and rear LED.

    Is this an issue that would be solved by an Fixed Rate Turn Signal Flasher or a LED 12V Signal Flasher? What's the difference between these two cookies as far as functionality goes?

    I had one in my road bike years ago and when they tell you to use the filler foam blocks to shim the battery box whatever you do put the foam blocks on the battery that way if you're stuck someplace and you need to put a stock battery in you don't have to yank the foam outa the box.

    Yes, you need LED specific flasher that is the same as fixed rate flasher. Regular stock OEM flasher interval depends on electric current load, more current more slower rate, less current faster rate. Might have just happened that your LED turn signals now take so little current that they dont even trip the old relay, and if they did it would flash too fast anyhow. Get a LED relay that fits crfl connector.

    If your just doin the front blinkers. And not the rear. Look for in line resistors. Google them. Pleaty of videos to help

    If interested - Costco has a charger/maintainer for lithium batteries on sale right now. It is $12 off so it ends up about $38.
