Are you just looking for a replacement, or something lightweight for racing purposes?

Replacement, long life, dependable, etc... Road use, able to keep a charge and its integrity while sitting for a month at the longest span, plugged into a tender.

And one last question, 06-08, or 09+? My first suggestion is if you have a 06-08, find yourself an 09+ battery box and go with the bigger battery. It'll be a little heavier, but since you said you want it for long life and dependability vs. lightweight the bigger batter will surely help with that.

Yes Shorai. All the research I've done since I've been dealing with crappy batteries for a while now point me in the direction of Shorai. The CCAs is the key thing for me. The Yuasa puts out 55 or 60 CCAs where the Shorai is rated at 120 CCAs. To add, every military member that I know who owns a Shorai has been able to go down range and have their bike stored for 6-12 months and come back with the bike still able to turn over with no issues. You can also use the Battery Tender branded chargers to charge your Shorai.
