I'll take the kickstart anyday, more reliable starting especially from cold (down to -10 celsius).

Every standard YTZ7S type battery will fit the box. So if you wanna go cheap you can buy one for 30 bucks from ebay.

Because of starting problems I tried both (cheap ebay and a LiFePO4/Super B) and both work good. Starting problem was the decompression lever on the camshaft.

No kicker on a 390

Electrics work fine with just taking out the battery on the 04 and making sure the battery wires aren't exposed for sparky fun time.

Needs a capacitor so the headlight won't dim when over 4000rpm, look up battery eliminator on ebay, that is connected where battery used to.
If in need of electricity, lend it from headlight, or so I heard.

Also make sure that your headlight is off when starting the bike, took me half an hour wondering if my bike is broken or did I become a pussyfoot.

Hi All,

Here in Aus I have purchased the SSB Lithium batteries both for my own bikes and those that I refurbish.

I read with interest the "advantages" of the lead acid battery and about the only one I can add is that they do a much better job at holding stuff down from blowing away in the shed(garage/workshop) because they are 3 to 4 times heavier than a Lithium.
First time I was posted an SSB battery I thought they had posted an empty casing by mistake THATS how light they are.
Also std FE450 550 and 650 batteries put out about 80-100 CCA and when old struggle to turn my 650 over. The lithium with 220 CCA packs double the punch with a third the weight and is supposed to last multiple times longer (yet to be tested) and doesn't run down as badly as lead acids when the bike sits for extended periods.
I remain amazed that people spend $750-$1200 for a full Ti system and part of most peoples justification is the weight saving (same pipe in stainless would flow exactly the same volume of exhaust right !) but wont stump up an extra $100 here in Aus for a LI battery that instantly saves 2 - 2.5kg......just f***ing amazing.
Here in AUS 113x85x70mm (I think they are) SSB branded Lithium batteries are $159 and lower CCA versions are available for $99- $109.
Specs below.
Oh just for the record I have NO affiliation at all with manufacturer or any distributor whatsoever I have just had a great run with 4 of their batteries.

The capacitor acts like an temporary battery where the electric system can dump excess power and draw power when it needs it. It kind of evens out the electric power to the system. Similarly to a regular battery.

I did exactly the same thing as mate worstinfinland
I used 10000uF capacitor from audio amplifier.
I have no problem with headlights and blinkers.
I also don't need turn off the lights when I start the engine.

Capacitor I placed under the seat.

FWIW I have had an Earth X in my FE650 now for just over 2 years since the original died.

Been fine so far and the extra cranking amps are nice

Only issue was that the original battery used to live on a CTek charger, the bike only gets a run monthly or so. But the charger isn't suited to the Lithiums so left it off. Seems there is some parasitic loss and the battery ran down over time. Pulling the main fuse sorted it. I've since fitted an ignition switch in series with the fuse which has 2 circuits, so kill switch too and no issues at all since. The additional level of security doesn't hurt either.





Switch is on LHS bar clamp.

I've also fitted an Earth X to my DR650 and its been fine too, although the first one supplied was defective. This means I'll no longer deal with that supplier here in Oz due to their incompetance.
Thanks from tourist
