Have you got any more random faults on the bike?

If you were blowing 40 amp fuses due to an ECU issue, I'd like to know how that could even happen. The circuitry doesn't support it.

I'm not sure, but it was constantly doing it. It went to two garages then an mv dealer to nail the cause of the problem.

Mine was on the 750 Senna, Nick Harper also had the same problem and Norwich had to send it away to get the ecu repaired.

It would have to lock in the start solenoid for that to happen.

Who knows. I'm not mechanically or electrically minded but it resolved my issue is all I know

I purchased the MV Branded Lithium battery and fitted it as the original was left on the bike and had to be replaced.

It started life quite powerful enough, but couldn't really tell the difference between it and the lead acid it replaced.

Unfortunately, I left that on the bike a bit longer than intended and it died, but charged it up and it was never the same.

At very first attempt at starting the engine, the dash lights die, and you can see that the dash re-sets itself. The battery eventually becomes stronger and on the second or third attempt, the engine will fire up every time. Since that happened, I have lost the brake light, not sure if this is related, I need to check the fuse no 7 and the connections for that, as I have installed a quick release tail tidy connection (I am mentioning it because I saw that someone else had an issue with the brake lights).

It is quite annoying to have the dash re-setting itself, because all the settings get deleted (trip meters, lap times and traction control).

I wonder if anyone else has the same problem with Lithium batteries.

Thanks for sharing the 40amp fuse issue, this has not occurred to me yet, but it is a good idea to fit one that resets itself, but maybe there is a different problem elsewhere causing it to blow.

Thanks,

Chris

The dash reset is a function of low voltage to the ECU during the start sequence. This is one of the indicators that something is amiss with the battery be it lead-acid, lithium, or other....

Seems its kinda like the old comparison between Mac vs PC
Lithium vs lead
That said, there are certainly qualitative differences in materials and manufacturing.

Both have parameters, but most importantly is to make sure your battery has enough voltage for your particular bike and understand overall care must be applied from start to finish with anything associated to motos.

Not really .... (other than price) can you name one advantage of lead over lithium?

Lead will never catch fire.

I have a lithium in my 2018 Fireblade which is kept on specific 'Optimate' tender when not in use. Not one ounce of problem with starting or dash functions.
