Contents and installation Shorai® LFX batteries come in a variety of case shapes and sizes, capacity options and right/left polarity options for the best possible fitment. If the LFX is slightly smaller than the original battery in one dimension or another, high-density, adhesive-backed foam sheets are included in the package. These can be trimmed and applied to the batter box in minutes to make a solid fit and with added thermal and vibration insulation. Cable connections can be made either at tops or sides of the terminals. All these options and sizes allow Shorai® LFX to offer a drop-in installation for most powersports vehicles.
When you open a LFX battery package you will also find terminal screws and a set of spares, Shorai® decals in various sizes and the user manual.
Self-adhesive foam shims insure a great fit to the battery box, as well as extra vibrational and thermal insulation.

A NOTE ABOUT BATTERY CHARGERS: Improper charging is dangerous and will void your warranty. Depending on the application, you may never need to charge your Shorai LiFePO4 LFX Lithium Iron Phosphate battery. If you disconnect the negative battery cable in storage, it is only recommended to charge once per year. Modern street bikes that have a draw when the key is off, however, will eventually drain the battery. For proper charging, we recommend the Shorai Battery Management System charger, Part No. 20-01801 or any of our other chargers specifically listing Lithium LiFePO4 batteries. Â"SmartÂ" lead-acid chargers with automatic cutoff may be used for periodic charging, but will NOT work as a tender/maintainer and should be disconnected immediately after charge has finished. Older lead-acid type battery chargers without automatic shut-off should never be used. Also, do not use a charger that employs a high-voltage Â"desulfation modeÂ".
Love the weight of this battery. Also when the description said turns right over, they weren't kidding. From day one, my bike hasn't had a problem starting. That was only 6 months ago, but I would recommend.
First off kudos to Dennis Kirk for excellent service and ease of ordering. I splurged and bought this battery for my 1982 Honda CB900C bike after the bike had been sitting for 18 months and the lead acid battery went dead even thought it was on a trickle charger. The new battery fit fine with a few of the foam shims that come with the battery. One squart of starter fluid in the air box and this battery and the bike fired right up. The bike cranked better and faster than any previous lead battery I’ve had. Only complaint is now I have to go buy Shorai’s ion battery charger, ugh.
