Anyone else see this commercial? forgot what gym - there's a shot showing a few pizzas, while, assume a customer, is eating a slice.

After 16 yrs, my Battery finally gave up the ghost in my Gen 1. When looking for a replacement, I was intrigued by the new Lithium offerings - found this on Amazon... BTL14A240C Lithium 12V 240 CCA + Battery Tender Junior 800 022-0199-DL-WH Combo and ordered it up. Working great so far. small form factor and boy, the weight differential is quite significant... https://www.amazon.com/BTL14A240C-Li...ype=motorcycle

I have this battery sitting on a shelf in case the Shorai in mine ever dies, I also had a smaller model BT battery in my DRZ. Also had one in my Speed Triple. The one he linked to can be found at Walmart.com also.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Deltran-B...ttery/32833010

Make sure to get the Litium BT charger too.

You know, they're not real fun to install. Why do they give you nuts that are too skinny and the screws don't reach? I used a zip tie under the nut until I got the screw started.

A very helpful tip I only learned a couple of years ago. Anytime I get a new battery, I put a piece of plastic tube under the terminal nut. This makes it MUCH easier to reconnect, particularly if you have added other connectors to the battery terminal on top of that washer.

That is a stoke of genius! Going to do that a.s.a.p., as i have battery tender leads on my 2001 and 2002, FZ1's.

Thanks for the tip.
