shinya wanted to try "SHORAI" lithium battery so we went to a mega motorcycle parts/gear store in suburb for the first time. man, it was huge, flashy and everything there was brand new that made us feel dizzy. anyway, the battery is unbelievably light, weighs almost nothing. it says:
  • Ultra light. One Fifth the weight of lead-acid batteries on average
  • Zero sulfation, for longer service life
  • Holds unloaded charge for one year without maintenance
  • Military spec Carbon Composite Case
  • Faster cranking for better starts
  • Super-fast recharge rate
  • No explosive gasses during charge, no lead, no acid
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Two-Year Warranty
we'll decide on its quality upon using it.

  • 鉛バッテリーと比較して平均約1/5の超軽量
  • 希硫酸等を一切使用しておらず、寿命が長い
  • 自己放電率が少なくメンテナンス無しで1年後でも使用可能
  • 米国防総省のミルスペック適合のカーボンコンポジットプラスチックケースを採用
  • 速いクランキングが可能で始動性抜群
  • 超急速充電が可能
  • 鉛や希硫酸等を一切使用しておらず、爆発する危険性がなく安全
  • 環境を破壊する鉛等を使用していないため、環境に優しい
  • 2年間保障付

shinya has been riding the CL450 so hard that the rear tyre was already worn out so we got a new one at the mega store because they got all kinds of tyres in stock in their humongous warehouse. ;p



in our dictionary, a new tyre means a test ride :D

Lithium batteries for bikes, cool. I've been using Lithium battery operated tools for a couple of years now, and am impressed by them...have to try one in a bike.

Just refabbed my under tail battery tray to fit a LiPO battery. Makes me happy the light weight and small size. I'm sure he'll find it inspiring!

Hairy Larry: they're bit pricey but it sure worth it.

Rhynchocephalian: great!
