Banshee Lithium Battery

After cutting down the Lithium Batteries, I bought another one..I have been through two gel acid batteries this year, I think they just rattle apart or the heat gets to them..The Banshee spins her like a top..500cca..On top of that I shorted out under the seat the other day when I installed it , instead of going up in flames, It just blew a resetting breaker in the battery..When I got her home and found the short, the battery just popped back on like nothing happened. The technology has advanced quite a bit since my first Lithium and it was only $180, so as of now I'm giving this thing a 5 star rating, hopefully it will last more than a couple of years..

With your input i had ordered
SSTX20HQ-FP Scorpion Stinger 12v 525 CCA LiFePo4 Quad Terminal Extreme High Output Battery. $227
perfect fit small battery. I'M HAPPY WITH IT FOR 2.5 YEARS. I HAVE IT ON SPECIAL CHARGER THOUGH: NOCO Genius G1100 6V/12V 1.1A UltraSafe Smart Battery Charger

What is the particular model of your new battery?

This is the DLFP20L- BS It seems to be more powerful than the other two...Scorpion and Anti gravity
but my original problem could have been a bad starter..ever since I replaced my starter with a slightly larger one she has cranked much easier, along with the fact that shes broken in and loosened up now..so I really don't know...But I really like the internal circuit breaker thing..The smart charger is a great idea, I am going to order one..The original Anti gravity was almost $500..

I purchased a shorai lithium battery a few months ago. I think its 315 cca. It never drops in power, I can turn it over and it seems like it never runs slow. I guess they either go full speed or no speed.

Its only been a few months....

I looked on line, it appears to be standard softail size, correct?
too tall for my application.
The scorpion was very small and can be placed in any posiotion thanks to 2 pairs of terminals.
My Hannibal, fat bike has 11:1 compression[ even though i machined in compression releases] it was tough to start. I have one of those permanent magnet starters 1.5kw, huge cables[ like gauge 1-2] and that new battery- the starting system works great now.

I buy the cheapest assed Chinese lithium batteries I can on ebay. They are small, last a long time, and when they finally do give up the ghost, I buy another cheap ass Chinese lithium battery.

It struggles to start my 127, but eventually pops it off.....

Speaking of cables, on this last battery install I used 3/4 soft copper hammered flat, and was able to run it straight down the front of the battery box and out, about 1/8 room or so , and connected my cables to it..It sure saved a lot of room .....my battery box is extra crowded..I don't know what size wire 3/4 copper tubing equals but it works quite well.

SOUNDS GOOD. I ALWAYS MADE MY CABLES FROM MARINA GRADE, THEY ARE VERY FLEXIBLE EVEN IF A FINGER THICK.

I THINK I HAD MENTIONED BEFORE, ALSO DISASSEMBLED MODIFIED COMPRESSION RELEASE VALVES, DEEPENING THE GROVE ON THE CORE VALVE WHICH IS HELD BY A BEARING BALLS IN OPEN POSITION: SO IT TAKES MORE EFFORT FOR THE ENGINE TO SPIT IT OUT. FOR 127 IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM.

After shearing my starter jack shaft one morning, I always think about three times before i press the starter button. I have to hold both releases down, and she actually cranks and runs with the compression releases held down, but it sure makes it easier to start. I think mine need an over haul, do your releases spew a little oil ? mine always have..

i remember you saying that.
My adjustment makes them more stiff to pop out.
i can see smoke/carbon deposit next to the release valve holes on the heads, but not oil.

but they all do it slowly. regardless of my rebuilding them
