    Try an Earth X battery... because of the size limitations, it might be difficult, if not impossible to get the CCA for cold weather riding in a non LI battery. The only battery that would fit was very low on CCA for AGM and lead acid. Fortunately, I ride in South Texas, which does not require the cold starting amps... The width of the battery is what kills you...

    Try a Google search for Shorai Li dead shorting cells. That may turn up something.
    I had a different battery do that in another bike last summer.

    Wow, no. I'd call Shorai and send them pics of it.

    "Shorai battery melt" brings up a bunch of images.

    Did you use the original charger?

    Even Boeing had this problem with Li batteries. They are light, incredibly energy dense, and as a result, more volatile.

    Any others find the "best fit/CCA combo" for a replacement battery?
    Just brought home a brand new 21014 SX (2 miles) and the battery is completely toast.
    Flunky at dealer tried to charge it before I got there with near disastrous results.

    Why not the OE Shorai replacement?
