Shorai Motorcycle Batteries

While better technology exists, motorcycles of all kinds are going down the road needlessly carrying a heavy slab of lead. For just about every bike on the market, a better option exists in the form of a Shorai Battery. There’s no lead here, but rather, a well-engineered lithium iron phosphate power cell that provides more starting power, less self-discharge and a longer life than the lead-acid battery it replaces.


Each Shorai battery chassis is designed to be as small and as light as possible. And, while the chassis may look the almost the same as a conventional motorcycle battery, you’ll notice right away when picking it up that you’re holding something special. Depending on the machine, you can expect to save anywhere from 6-20lbs. off your bike’s weight. Power output aside, in terms of weight savings to value, there’s nothing else you can replace on your bike that saves so much weight at such a reasonable price.


For bikes with high-compression pistons or other modifications that make turning over the engine more demanding on the starter, the battery is ready for the challenge. Each battery is rated to operate at a higher voltage output than the stock unit it replaces. This makes a Shorai battery an excellent choice for performance engine builds. And when riding season is over, the battery’s low self-discharge rate means you can pull it out of your bike, put it inside and not have to worry about it becoming flat when springtime rolls around. Just install when it’s warm and go!

Shorai batteries require no special modifications to your bike’s stock charging system. Even the electrical poles are the same arrangement as the stock battery you’re replacing making installation a snap. And, because the power elements are fitted inside as small a chassis a possible, easily-cut foam blocks are included with each battery to provide a simple, quick installation in your bike’s OEM battery box. You can also use the additional space for fitting various tuning components, such as a Power Commander V, in that newly-available space.



Backed by a five year manufacturer warranty, you can buy with confidence. To get your own model-specific Shorai battery, give TJ a call on 866.931.6644 ext 817, send a note to [email protected] with SHORAI BATTERY in the subject line along with the model and year of the bike you’re riding, or just shoot us a PM and we’ll get right back to you.

ive had one on both my daytonas first battery worked like a charm, got it brand new and installed it fired up like a champ every single time for years. the second one came with a bike i purchased ( not sure how long it sat ) plugged in into the charger when its sitting in maintenance mode. but that bad boy HATES the cold im talking like 50s it just doesnt seem to be happy. had to take my propane radiant heater and point it at the battery to get it to start last trackday. not sure the significance but food for thought. with that being said if and when i replace said tropically inclined battery itll probably be with another Shorai

I would suspect there is something up with the battery that came with the bike. Maybe it was discharged a bit too far. Is it the same model number, correct fitment for the bike?

that's what i suspected too. the bike actually came with two batteries the other was non responsive to the charger. ill have to check on the model number when i get home but the guy was very thorough with the bike so i comfortably assume so. probably just didnt make it onto the trickle for what... a year or so? im not sure the discharge rate of them.

It could be that the battery is a 14ah and you really need a 18ah, or something along those lines.

I know with the 675 there isn't a gear reduction on the starter so I always recommend getting a slightly more powerful battery.

You have to use a Shorai trickle charger, correct? I have one in the track bike I bought last year, but was afraid to hook it up.
