Looks like a nice find....make sure you maintain the correct polarity when swapping batteries...and get all the leads connected correctly!

350+ CCA and 8lbs lighter than stock. I do like the technology behind it.
Gotta call BS on that as the Yuasa YTZ10S weighs in at 7 lbs.....

Try another link or tell us the brand of battery.
Battery posts can be "interesting".
Most lithium Iron batts are about 1.7 lbs (.77 kilo) vs lead acid @ 7 lbs (3.1+ kilo).
Must be typo in literature, 8 vs 6.
No one is busting on you, just checking.

Donsy, what fun would you guys have if there weren't errant and redundant threads to move around :) Oh, for some reason I can't see anthing concerning the battery in mention within the first post, was it editted, lost or hijacked?

Edit: Never mind, it popped up.

Personally I just don't trust the Li batteries enough to justify using one outside of racing application, where shedding the weight really matters. being in a cold environment also makes me lean away from them.

I've had a lot of power tools with Li battery packs that die in days if not constantly on charge and am not completely sold that the larger applications would hold up much better for me.

This is what got to me......

Oh my soul, another battery thread, starting to sound like the oil and tyre episode's. Nobody takes the time to do a search or just read anymore.

Sorry if I upset you mate, but I was serious, if you just scrolled to page 2 in the Maint section you would have seen that post I mentioned. Sometimes you learn a lot more by scrolling through all these other things that pop up. Anyway, it doesn't mean we decided not to help you, no games played when someone needs help mate.

The Li based batteries used on Power tools are not the same us these used in bikes.

They don't state how many cells that battery has. I run a 12 cell A123 systems pack. If that pack has 12 cells then it's very much worth it. But if it's only 8 cells then it's a bit overpriced.

I got it this morning, put in my 2005 Polaris quad twin 800......fired right up. I can't believe it's power. This might be they key to our Solar/LED house lighting.

Give us a break-down of the battery: cells, CCA, etc.
