Lithium Ion batteries?

Hey all, I've ordered a new lithium battery to replace the heavy stock battery- anyone experience issues doing this to a F3 800?

I ask because my Ducati 1098 had regulator issues with a similar type battery replacement and it turned out to be an issue Ducati had with regulators at that time.......just wanted to ask the forum members if any knew of any issues that might surface doing this with the F3 800.

Cheers guys~

I have an AntiGravity ATZ10-12 in my Turismo which generally has the same engine as the F3 (even has F3 on the casing) albeit in a different state of tune. The alternator on the Turismo is also, I believe, a higher output so not a direct comparison. However, have been running the LiPo battery for a year without any issues.

Dons of this parish recommended AntiGravity and I can testify to that advice being good.

I've been running a Shoari LFX19A4-BS12 in my F3 675 for about 9 months without issue

This is the battery I have on my F3 800. I have a lithium specific battery maintainer. Noco Genius 1200 I think. No issues. Starts much more robustly. Hoping this makes sprag clutch a little happier with positive engagement. Even starts in freezing weather but its ballistic when warm!

I'm also running a Shoari LFX19A4-BS12 in my F3 800, have been for a little over a year and 13,000km.

Original battery was rubbish, heavy and didn't hold much charge or have much cranking force, had absolutely zero issues with the Shorai and have left it without being plugged in to any external chargers etc. for weeks with no issues. Although I'm glad it's a reliable battery as battery accessibility was not on MV's to-do list :P

There's a reason the OEM is called a BS battery... I'll let you put that together yourself.

Used Shorai in the past with no issues on countless machines, on the F3 800 I wanted to go with more CCA (280CCA) and went with a Ballistic battery instead. Worked fine in 31 degree temps. from my understanding Shorai is older technology, but still seems to work fine for years of service!

Which one did you go with Steve?

That has some warning signs for me... price too low and the CCAs in picture vs description. I think it is a low quality battery that will work great initially but after a year won't be any good.
