I have a Shorai LiFe. Been nothing but happy with it, had the bike sitting for 2 months through winter (outside) and bike fired right up with one thumb of the starter. You do however have to take her out for a ride to recharge... I made the mistake of checking several nights before I planned on going on a ride by starting it up to see if it still had juice. Fired right up no problem; didn't let it idle for more than a minute... come ride day, swapped oil and tried again. Battery was dead
So while a tender on a stock battery will be your best choice for a FOR SURE start and restart, the Shorai will fire right up as well but you do have to take it out for a ride to charge.
Shorai has weight savings (2lbs) and is much smaller than the stock. You'll have enough room for the factory tool kit in there.
Nothing at the moment
