    Anti Gravity battery

    I just purchased an Anti Gravity battery for my SX.
    It's a 12 cell small case battery #1201. Hope to try it in the bike tonite. It's the only battery that I could find that would fit in the box other than the oem Shorai.
    It's the same depth + smaller height + length than the oem.
    It say it has 380 cranking amps. Curious that it doesn't say cold cranking amps.
    Has anyone had experience with this company/battery?

    Ok here we. The battery fits great. You have to just tweek the L shape on the cables just a little to line up with the cable connections on the battery. In the instructions it says you have to straighten them out cause the contacts are more inward on the battery top. But they almost fit stock.
    It's the same thickness as stock battery + is narrower + lower.
    So I put some battery padding on the positive side of the battery + a thin piece in back(which is the bottom of the battery)of the battery.
    Seat fits fine. Turned on ignition press button + it quickly starts!
    You don't need a Shorai battery charger to charge it.
    I'm using a late model Battery Tender Jr which on be changed between lead acid to lithium positions.
    Slightly more expensive than the Shorai. I paid $186 from Amazon shipped.

    PS: Make sure you order the small case model. Their standard 12 cell is a bigger case + won't fit!

    You really can't measure true cranking amps on a lithium. The power can not be safely extracted fast enough. A fast discharge is what is likely frying the stock batteries.

    Yep. I have a current draw with key off. I replaced a bad dash. But that wasn't the problem.
    I personally don't like the Shorai dedicated charger. There are just to many connections to it. The cable coming out of the charger is not hard wired to it. Then you have the ponytail connector. Not a snap together connection. Just push connect
    Then it plugs into the battery itself with another push connect
    Problem with that connection is it points up toward the seat bottom. So it bends down when seat is installed.
    Well I put the bike on the charger + road another bike for a week. Went back + battery was dead!
    One of the THREE connections must have not been complete.
    Now with the Anti Gravity battery it uses a Battery Tender Jr that is switchable between acid/lithium batteries. With the SAE connector there is only one connection which doesn't easily pull apart.
