    Pretty good. Very small cockpit. Wife likes it!

    I love the DRZ, it does everything I want a bike to do. Some of my other mods that aren't detailed below are the Vibranator vibration canceling bar inserts, flush mount rear turn signals, ProMoto billet rack, and a tool box from a Yamaha XT225.
  3. How long should I expect a lithium battery to last? I put a Shorai lithium battery into my 2014 RR300. It started the 300 like it was on steroids. Now a 2 stroke 300 is not going to put much strain on a lithium battery. In the 23 months its been in the bike I have never flooded the bike or needed to crank and crank the battery to get it to start. The bike has been run most months, and every time I have hauled it out of the garage the battery has woken the engine up with gusto. I rode the bike two weeks ago for an hour. Started fine. Then went to start it last weekend. The solenoid clicked and the starter attempted to turn. Started on second kick. Part way through the weekend I tried the electric start and no sound whatsoever. Tonight I stripped the bike down a bit and pulled the battery. Its turned into a pumpkin, with both long sides bulging about 15mm. Reads 0.0 volts. The battery has never been charged other than by the bike. Has always read about 13 volts, even after a couple of months not being used. For a $260 battery I would have expected a bit more life out of such an expensive bit of kit? What are other peoples experience with lithium batteries?? They certainly cut down on weight, but my last lead acid battery in a 525 lasted 4 years!
  4. After 7 years the Yuasa battery quit today...I thought that was damn good longevity. Replaced with another AGM glass mat sealed battery. Pretty pricey for the size.....but so was the wife!:lol:
  5. Hey guys. I've got an old BD dual sport kit on my 97 xr4 and I am wanting to replace the battery. Rather than using another bd battery pack I was hoping to use something a bit more robust. I found this battery and I am wondering if it will work ok on my bike http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0053TR7B8/ref=aw_wl_ov_dp_1_9?colid=15M2HUR03QQB&coliid=I37V3P88D7PBY1 How does this battery compare to the BD battery? My bike has the stock stator but I would like to get a 200w one at some point. If it helps, here is a pic of my current battery and regulator: Any help would be much appreciated!
  6. I am not exactly sure, but I think it may be the connection to the battery or a blown fuse, but my bike would not start yesterday. None of the electronics would work. I have the S model, so it's electric start only. The headlight would not come on, my vapor tech (wired to a circuit not controlled by the ignition) would not light up, and my brake lights would not trigger. That tells me that it's not just my ignition switch. I tried to jump it with my wife's car thinking if it was a totally dead battery or the connection at the terminals, then at least I could jump it and get it home, but no luck. I have not yet tried to push start it, but I am less than a mile from my house, so I think I am just going to walk it home today. Does anyone have an idea of a fuse I might have blown when I wired up my vapor tech the day before yesterday?
  7. Well since 08 I have been running a Cycle Tron YTX5L-BS battery in my 2008 KTM 450 exc-r. It has seen it's last days. Just wondering what everyone else is running for a battery in their bike and why?
  8. I recently had me battery fail on me while riding, speedo went in and out, turned out to be a bad cell in the battery, i purchased a no name cheapo battery and its been fine, (i always keep it on the battery tender when not in use), i notice that while the bike is stored and the battery tender indicator light is GREEN (fully charged), if i shake the bike back and forth or side to side the light will go to blinking red, and then to RED (charging mode), just from me shaking the bike, not even being turned on or anything, does this mean its got a bad cell or something?
  9. I replaced my heavy lead/acid battery with one of those Lithium lightweight batteries (Shorai). This will be my 3rd battery (all replaced under warranty). They seem to last about 2-3 months and then go bad. I ride my bike most every weekend and why not always on a charger, I throw it on occasionally. The manual says it can go for months without charging. It seems once they go bad, they will no longer accept a charge. Anyone else have similar problems with these batteries? Their whole selling point is a higher starting voltage, longer life and less weight. So far I have only seen 1 out of 3 (less weight). I don't mind as much as long as they replace them for free, but not sure how long that will last.
  10. how dangerous are lith.ion batterys for every day street bike use?
  11. I have a 2013 SX-450, but this question would be for any EFI KTM, and I was talking to my dealer about battery charging. I have know him for about twenty years and he is very knowledgeable on KTMs and I am not trying to doubt his word. He stated that during battery charging that the fuel pump is engaged if the negative terminal is not disconnected and it would eventually burn up the pump. Now I have been around the block a few times but I don't know everything. Why would charging the battery engage the pump. Thanks

    Top bike! heaps of power but manageable for beginners(if your not scared), suspension is great on hard dirt, gravel, sand, mud and whatever you can throw at it.<br />real tuff bike, mines been dropped down hills, on rock, in deep mud so many times i just pick it up and its fine.<br />great trail bike, would recommend!

    It's not a serious dirt bike, but it's lots of fun on and off road. Probably my favorite thing is the low seat height, I fall over with my DR-Z400 every ride in the dirt.
  14. I worry about the generator in my turbo YZ (snowbike). Besides the fuel injection system, it is powering my secondary injection system, Koso multi-gauge, sometimes a radiator fan, sometimes my MCX data logger and I need to get a headlight, hand warmers would be nice too. I would like to mount a battery and wire it into the system so I don't have to worry about my stator burning up out in the woods. Has anyone done this? I am sure the wiring cant be as simple as I am thinking. Just wire the battery into the same harness I pull the rest of my power from, and have a switch? Obviously the injection system would be live at all times when the switch was on. Would this cause any problems? I also wonder if the battery would be at risk of over charging when I'm not using a bunch of juice? Electricians, I need your help! Thanks
  15. So I bought a new Shorai battery a couple months ago and it was working wonderfully. Last week I installed a Trail Tech Voyager on my X and now twice my battery has been dead. I connected the power wires to the battery and installed a 2 amp fuse (smallest I could find) between the + battery terminal and the + power wire to the Voyager. I have my Voyager set to power off after 25 minutes of the bike not running. Any ideas on why my battery keeps dying? I am pretty sure its the battery dying. As I am trying to start the bike for the first ride of the day it will crank but the crank speed will slow and get slower. On a side note, i think my starter may be going out. Sometimes I have to push the start button 10 or 15 times before it will enguage the starter. It will click and hold utill I let off the start button. Then click and hold again when I push the start button but it doesnt always enguage. It doesnt always act up...but its not a surprise when it does.
  16. got one in my 520, and no problems since i don't leave the GPS in the cradle any more.... bikes been parked about two weeks. battery is stone dead. start it with a little powerall unit, and the thing is running like poop. won't idle, won't crank. acts like the battery is kerflooie. got it sitting on a 4 amp smart charger, to see if that helps... has there been any earth x batteries bricking that anyone knows of, or do i start looking elsewhere for the problem? thanks for any feedback...
  17. Ok, forgive me for being lazy and not reading the manual for my 300rr Race. If I don't ride for 2-3 weeks (yeah many of you can't imagine that, but I'm old ok?) my battery goes dead. I don't turn anything off. Do I need to turn a computer off somewhere or does it look like I have a short? Haven't put a multi on it yet, thot I'd ask first. Thanks.... oh and best bike I've ever had.
  18. Hi, I ve lost my Yuasa battery due to stator failure. Long story. Now I am looking for a new one. I ve been following the L.ion batteries for a while. Seems good, small, light, strong enough and can't say cheap. OEM batteries are classic, no need to explain. I make a short research and found both type works well-no problem (especially with free power mod). But I have some conflicts about "value". http://www.ballisticparts.com/products/batteries/4cell.php http://shoraipower.com/lfx09a2-bs12-p50 These are 2 popular L.ion batteries which fit DRZ400. Because I am from out of US (Turkey) they cost me more (+shipping). I found best ; Ballistic 4 cell costs : 105 $ (inc. shipping) Shorai LFX09 costs : 119 $ (inc. shipping) In here Turkey, I found Yuasa YT7B-BS for : 108 $ (which says 85 CCA old model I think and 6.5 Amp/H ) Bosch YT7B-BS for : 60 $ (120 CCA and 7Amp/H) total cost. So I have 2 question 1- Shorai has 9 amp/H and 135 CCA which seems very nice, much better than oem. But Ballistic has 120 CCA and 2.3 amp/H What the hell 2.3 amp/h means? Does it mean another thing/value ?? If it is not, how it works with 2.3 amp (Craig-O said he has been using Ballistic 4cell for ~2years with no problem) ? 2- Do L.ion batteries really worth ? Any reason to pay more to get similar specs with less dimension and weight ? Just asking... I would like go with Bosch, it is bosch in the end how bad can it be Almost half price...
  19. Just wondering which brand everyone likes and where the best place/price to buy them is? I will be buying one for a 13 350sxf only riding MX and I live in Alabama so normally don't ride below 45 degrees. Thanks
  20. Heard some folks talking about Shorai batteries failing on them and it happened to me today. I've had the battery for 6 months. I went riding on Saturday without any issue at all. Sunday I washed the bike fired it up and let it run for about 15 minutes before shutting it down and doing an oil change. So here it is Wednesday and I went out and was working on the bike and went to start it and nothing. I was pretty surprised by this. So I pull out my maintainer and it refused to start a charge cycle. Luckily I have the stock battery and pulled it out of a dusty corner of the garage and it is charging now. I went online and filed a warranty claim with Shorai. Guess I will see what they have to say but I'm not holding my breath.
  21. I'm searching for a new battery for my 2017 FX350 and was wondering what to buy. I've been very disappointed in Lithium Batteries that I've tried in the past and want something I can rely on and trust as well as have the cranking power to fire this bike better. I've narrowed it down to the Anti-Gravity AG-801 or the Antigravity ATZ-7-RS Lithium RE-START Battery. I've read good things about both, one has the Re-Start function and the other has more cranking amps. They are both about the same size and weight very close. The stock battery on the New Husky's are OK but not awesome. I'd be willing to bet that the stock battery has less than half the cranking amps of even the ATZ-7. Anyone with experience on these and can help me out, I'd appreciate the input.
