Shido Lithium Motorcycle Battery

The difference in weight is amazing. Fitted perfectly as it's the same dimensions as the original battery. Would recommend.

Nearly caught fire!

Light, quick cranking and easy to install, but a Suzuki 650 '99 generates up to 15.5V which was clearly too much for the battery: lots of smoke and stranded on an awkward bit of the A27 was not what I needed! The temperature of an overcharged LiOn battery was enough to melt bits of the battery box. Not pleased - hoping for a warranty claim.

Space Age Bat

Very lightweight, powerful and long-lasting. I was hoping that it would also be low-profile, to give me more storage space under the saddle but alas, it is the exact size of the original lead-acid lump invented in the Dark Ages.

Very impressed unbelievably light

First lithium battery I have ever purchased,I have never purchased a Shido battery before. I fitted it to my Kawasaki ER6F, there is plenty of power from the battery, works a treat, comes with 3 year warranty what more could you ask for. I would recommend Shido, I can't believe how light the battery is. I should also mention this is my fourth purchase from Sportsbikeshop and I have received first class service on all occasions.

Very light battery

my first lithium battery for my VFR 800 2014 - on. Very light. Another aspect that you need to consider with these batteries is that you need to wake them up which means turn the ignition ON don't push the starter button yet and leave it for a few seconds with low beam on (it's on anyway) and it will start immediately otherwise if you don't wake battery and push the start button immediately after ignition it will eventually start but it will struggle. Apart from that its a nice upgrade saving you weight . SBS top firm

Not 100% compatible

Nice light battery and does the job well. It is smaller than the lead acid equivalent and the placement of the health tester means some battery retainers are incompatible (April RSV4/Tuono for example).

Lithium Battery

I was struggling to find the correct fitment lithium battery for my RSV4 and emailed a few suppliers for assistance. A few didn't reply but Sportsbikeshop did and the same day. Purchasing was simple and it arrived quicker than quoted.
