Time for a new battery - R1150R - what are my choices?
« on: January 24, 2014, 09:33:22 AM »
So it's time for a new battery for my R1150R..

Has anyone experimented with some of the lighter batteries like the Shorai?

Do they last and are they light enough to make a difference? Are there other, better, alternatives?

I heard the canbus system caused issues with the Shorai. There is a thread about it on one of the BMW boards. Honestly I doubt you would really notice a few pounds out on the street.
