Sounds like Shorai is the way to go. I quickly ordered a Powermax early this morning but don't have a whole lot of experience with them. It was cheap, so no big deal if it doesn't work out; may just get a Shorai as backup. I didn't want to wait any longer since the bike is my lifeline! Can't deal with traffic sitting in a cage!

My OE battery in my 2006 D675 died after less than a year - didn't use a battery tender.

Dec 2006 I had the dealer prepare a new OE battery and I installed in in Dec of 2006. Its still in the bike and seems healthy. It has lived on a battery tender when not being ridden. So its still healthy almost 6 years later.

I will replace it soon. When batteries get that old they just suddenly fail. Don't want that hassle.

Crap, it is the stator. Stranded near the fwy. Kind of a scary experience having your lights go off in the dark.

Shorai and you can use a regular Battery Tender to charge it if needed.

The OEM lasted 5-years w/ battery tender attached, and was still holding a charge. Decided to replace it with the Shorai as they are so light!

So, in case anyone wonders, my battery was still good. The stator fried and took out my R/R as well. Both are being replaced with aftermarket units. One area Triumph needs to step it up; electronics are very questionable.

I have 1.5 years on the original battery, never on a tender, starts up every time without fail. I would love to use a light-weight battery but it is just too cold here as it is regularly below freezing at night and occasionally for weeks at a time. I ride year-round, save for snow.
