Customer Reviews for Shido Lithium Motorcycle Battery - LTX12-BS LION
Excellent first impressions
I've just bought this so I think it's a bit early to give a complete review for something like a battery that is hopefully going to last for years. All I can say is my first impression of the Shido is the weight saving is amazing. I honestly thought they had sent the wrong item, no way could it be a battery. The built in power gauge is a clever idea and tells you at a glance the state of charge. Mine arrived fully charged but I have a lithium charger just in case although reading other reviews I'm not sure I'll need it as these seem to retain their charge for ages. I don't have any alarm devices causing a constant drain so that might change things for you. Anyway to sum up it feels like a great quality product and time will tell how the service life compares to the old tech brick I pulled out.Read more
Light, Powerful but Fragile
Excellent little upgrade to ny old dated Lead Acid, made starting a lot easier and battery removal / installation far better with the low weight. Only issue is that they are very sensitive, my first one died due to a faulty regulator and could not be revived even with a lithium battery tender. Lesson learned, Lithium batteries are not as resiliant as Lead Acid ones!Read more
V-Strom battery replacement
This battery is super light and comes fully charged. I couldn't believe the weight difference until I help both the original and this battery together. Perfect fit with the spacers to raise it up. All in all a very good buy for anyone wanting to keep the weight of your bike down and definitely helps with the running of the bike.Read more

Superb little battery
Bearing in mind I had not started my Yamaha YZF 600R Thundercat for around 4 months, this battery brought the beast to life. Incredibly light but packed with power, this battery is a must for weight saving and ironing out any starting issues you may have had. I would recommend this upgrade to everyone.Read more
I always forget how incredibly light lithium batteries are. I should have got one long ago! The high output really helps my irritating, recurring VFR 800 FIX charging problems.Read more
Compared to the traditional lead acid batteries this battery is about a third of the weight so you think it can't have the power to start the bike but you couldn't more wrong, it's just amazing.Read more

Questions and Answers
Why do you need a lithium charger to charge these batteries? Do you require to charge them on regular basis (like mobile phones) are they not being charged by bike alternator? Or the lithium charger is just in case that they discharge during cold nights. ThanksOctober 26, 2018
Your bikes alternator will charge the battery in normal use, but if you wish to store the bike for a prolonged period of time (over winter for example) and use a battery charger such as an Optimate, you must use one that is suitable for Lithium batteries.
Is this Shido lithium battery suitable for use on Kawasaki W800 2011 which has a standard YTX12-BS battery? cheersJune 6, 2018
The battery will work fine however you will need a lithium charger to charge the battery
