Battery replacement

Recommended Posts

There are so many aftermarket battery options out there, I am overwhelmed with the choices. I definitely want a lithium, but I would like your input on what you have, how well it works, and so on. I have a smart charger from other hobbies that I can and will use to charge the lithium. Also list a price with what you have.

I recently installed an EarthX EXT12A Battery and the Terminal Adapter kit in my '09 WR450F that I regularly drive on the street. They say lithium batteries don't like the cold but when the temperatures were hovering around 0C (32F) it had no trouble starting.   

I went with EarthX because it was the only one that had internal electronics to automatically equalizes the cells which allows you to use a normal battery charger. The battery doesn't come with the terminal kit but I think it needs it to make the installation simpler.

It got drained below the safe voltage level and went into safety disconnect mode. Been siting out in the Minnesota cold for 4 months so what do you expect I guess.. I was not able to get it back out by doing their steps the recover. They sent me a new battery but other than that the battery works great, cranks hard and fast and saves a ton of weight!
