Shouldn't need to do anything. I swapped my stocker for a Lithium battery last year without issue. I love mine!

Lithium are the way forward but despite what the supplier told me a Lithium charger is needed if you want leave the bike for days without riding and it has an alarm fitted. That said they charge in a fraction of the time of a normal battery.

Ideally you should use a Lithium charger but you can use a normal one providing its not the type that has the de-sulphation mode, I used Oximiser on mine but never left it permanently connected, decided in the end to buy a Lithium one so I can connect and forget. Lithium batteries charge up very quick so its no big deal if its flat, 15 - 30 mins on the charger and the bike will start.

It's bad for a lithium battery to fall below a certain voltage and it's often the end of the battery.

I've had a shorai in my streetfighter for nearly two years now. Best money spent on a battery. I didn't bother to buy the special charger, these things discharge at such a low rate it takes a long time for them to die. If MVs alarms are like ducati alarms they go into stealth mode after 24 hrs so voltage draw is very low.

What I like about the shorai that's different from alot of the other batteries, it's a got a fail safe to keep it from having a castastrophic failure (I understand lithium batteries can fail quite catastrophically).

Also, if you go shorai go for the size 18, and not the 14.

FYI, the streetfighter is the first duc I've owned I don't use a battery tender on anymore.

Red to Red and Black to black and you'll be good. You need to reset your clock, if you use it.
