If she's not being ridden...it will drain in that period without a battery tender....just the way they are. I've obviously got an older brute...and no slipper clutch so it's an easy bump start and this has never caused any problems.

Motowheels sells them, not motovation, sorry. There are 2 models that will work with your bike, depends on how much power you want, the LFX14A2-BS12 or the LFX18A1-BS12. The latter being the more powerful one.

ok
i have a question on this
If the bike IS for a fact constantly draining the battery, even in the off position, there is no way that it is NOT draining the lithium baterries.
Right?
Just to be clear, It IS in fact draining the lithium batteries also, right??
It is just that due to their construction, they are losing less charge to the atmosphere and they dont have that slow draw memory that lead acid has, so they can get back on the ball alot better
Right?

You may want to get a trickle charger for the Lithium as well, wont hurt to have one. We sell two different brands, Spectrum and Mavyrik as well as the "Pacemaker" trickle charger, here's the link to both of them.

Right. Lithium batteries do not self discharge like lead acid batteries do. If the bike doesnt have an electrical problem or an alarm thats constantly drawing power from the battery even when the bike is off, then you should in theory be able to start your bike even after a year of not touching it. But I think MV's do draw from the battery when off, even without an alarm. Not sure why though. Maybe to keep the clock setting/memory????????????

Im using a home made 12 cell A123 pack and I have left my bike untouched for periods of 2-4 months without a charger or tender plugged in, and she has still fired up on the first try. But if I were to do it again, I would get the high capacity Shorai battery.
