Shido Lithium Motorcycle Battery - LTX14-BS LION
Customer Product Reviews
Packs a punch
From reading other reviews I was in to minds about buying this product as it seemed that it struggled to turn over a big twin these worries were all unfounded it spun my Super Duke R 1290 (1301cc) into life effortlessly awesome product! another Bonus it weighs .900kg standard battery about 4.5 kg what's not to like.
Good battery top service.
Good battery, replacement for original on my BMW K1300S. I was a bit concerned choosing Lithium over OGM but shouldn't have been, dose the job. Takes a little longer to "wake up" opposed to an AGM but fine for starting and running heated grips, etc. Apparently they don't like the cold, neither do I. We will see how long it lasts.

Good but struggles a bit with an R1200GS
As other reviews, light, powerful and a good price, supplied with plastic blocks to allow easy fitment. It dropped nearly 5kg from bike. Only quibble is that it does struggle to really kick over a big twin (R1200GS) and the Aliant YLP18 is much better for purpose but a chunk more cash.
Amazingly lightweight and surprisingly powerful.
It's a fraction of the weight of the original battery and starts the bike quicker as well! Comes with all the necessary adaptors and is an absolute doddle to fit - about 10 minutes if you put a dab of grease on the underside of the nuts. Throw in next day delivery and a bargain price, and you have the excellent service I've come to rely on from SportsbikeShop. If I could have given it a 6, I would have.
Fitted to a BMW F650GS Twin. Can't believe how light it is compared to the original battery, it's incredible. Probably saving 4KG in quite a high position on the bike. Not why I bought it but very happy to discover the difference. The plastic inserts help it to fill the space left as the battery is about half the size of the original too. There's space under to put in extra wiring I guess.
Fitted this to my K1200s. It spins it over very well. Weighs nowt! I took the advice of the instructions and swapped the C-Tek leads onto my wife's bike as I won't be needing it anymore (?). We'll see how that goes. Happy so far.
So far so good
So far so good anyway, a fraction of the weight of a lead acid battery and benefits from a 3 year warranty rather than the Yuasa 1 year warranty - Will it be as good as its cracked up to be? Who knows but the price was comparable and because the battery is smaller (built up with blocks either side) i can use the now empty space underneath the battery for some ancillary connectors
