Got a Shorai in my Tuono, Panigale and KTM 300 XCW.

The KTM 300 sat neglected for 3 years without being charged. It doesn't have a parasite drain like my Tuono or Panigale. I was very surprised when it fired the bike up on the second press of the starter.

I've herd and experienced stock oem batteries are quite weak. Any new battery will be an upgrade. If you want to go lithium have at it, but either way it needs a non stock battery.

I've had my 1199 since April 2013. Have yet to replace the battery. I rotate through bikes on a weekly basis n there have been times when the 1199 wasn't started in well over a month. Never had one issue with it yet. It has been a great oem battery for over 4 1/2 years with never having been connected to a tender before. In fact, I'm hoping it does start having problems so I can have a reason to get rid of it but a Shorai battery won't be the replacement.

I've had my 1199r since August 2014, still has original battery from new, when not been ridden it's always on a c tech battery charger.
