  • A question about lithium batteries. Ok, modern ones will not burn if you charge it below 0ºC, but that is because they have some kind of Battery Management System (BMS) that stop the charge if something goes bad. But here comes the question: Is it any different when you are riding the bike under 0ºC?? I mean, does the BMS stop the charge and the battery will die while you are riding? Or why is different charging the battery with a charger than doing it while riding?

  • Is there any information regarding warmer climates. I'm in Texas, I ride a Duc 1098 and go through batteries every 2 yrs. I use Lead Acid conventional. I keep it on a tender when not in use. The bike runs very hot, the weather is nearly Satans butthole in the summer. Is there a better battery for this climate and the brutal heat my 2Banger produces? I was going to go Li but now I'm not sure. Thanks for the Video, Great data!

  • Just bought a new 2017 Honda rebel 300 and I’m not exactly sure what type of battery they installed? I’ve had it in storage since October and usually start it about three times in a month to keep things going but sometimes I wonder how long the battery will last since the weather is usually around 28-35 degrees.

  • 12v related videos are great a look into power draw from all of different common accessories and lights would be cool, cant find a lot out there about bike alternators and other 12v power upgrades, things like bc-dc chargers, solar maintenance chargers, a look into fuses , common issues and fixes. Bikes are getting more and more complicated with even some simple dirt bikes having complex 12v electrical systems let alone proper touring bikes , what kind of 12v failures would lead to big issues for getting home?

  • Need a new battery. I remembered Ryan did this video. Had to watch it a number of times to fully digest it. Incredible amount of relevant, useful information in a 12 minute video. And entertaining as usual for Ryan and the crew. They are truly talented, intelligent, thoughtful, and ground-breaking. I wholeheartedly disagree with what seems to be his choice at the end. He is a bit cryptic. Which he likes to be. And I am sure he recognizes and respects that different people will come to different conclusions about which choice they would make. Since I am in “not Canada”, so the Li charging excitement is probably not relevant, and I want the weight savings, I think I’ll give the Li a shot.

  • RED ALERT, RED ALERT, Science will not save us from Science. If the UN had a plan it would go something like this. 1. The worlds total population will have to except to not bring children into this world for the next 20 years. ( there are plenty of children that need love and a home ) 2. People that would like to end there lives should be legally and socially accepted.( euthanasia) (a persons dignified wright)😀 3. All wars must stop today. ( people get to go home to live in there own places ) 4. The automobile industry must stop producing Fossil Fuel power social vehicles ending 2017. ( people get to still have a job in the motor industry building alternative vehicles ) 5. All countries that can will need to produce there our products (reducing ocean travel fuel burn)( sustain a work force) 6. All global business will need to move investment to full blown Renewable energy supply. ( they and their investors still make money ) 7. All countries will need to grow billions of tons of Indian Hemp. The hemp will provide for a huge carbon store by making everything you can from it. Replacing all petrochemical products. (diversity will create contentment and PEACE and UNDERSTANDING. ) 8. Socially all drug addicts will be supplied with there drug of choice at a place of convenience. At a cost that will cover the cost. ( social rest,the end of the black market and the decline in overall drug use and deaths.) 9. The amounts of Fossil Fuels (burnt) in the country's that will still need them will be calculated so as to keep the atmosphere stable as the gasses are reduced. ( the second and third world people will still have their first world comforts and thus we all become one world people excepting all cultures.) Sounds great hey. 10. Understand that there is a lot more to UNDERSTAND and DO to save LIFE. The Scientific COMMUNITY have a colossal job in helping to do this. We need all of us to DO this, ALL OF US. And the list goes on. (Patience and faith in one another) Now for the HARD COLD FACT. We have all got to face the fact that MONEY has driven corruption to cause our fellow citizens to fail in the course of governing. ( the time has come for love and equality to drive sustainability and so allowing cultures to reclaim their heritage and the world to be at peace) GOVERNMENTS are failing and the CORPORATE system is too. Don't get me wrong we NEED Our governments and the Corporate SYSTEM, WE need them to work for ALL of us and do RIGHT by ALL of us NOW as well as THEM. And that goes for our Mother Earth. She is the mother to ALL of US and we all know an UPSET MUM equals unhappy Children...😔😤😩

    Nathan DeanNathan DeanPrieš mėn
  • I wonder how well suited to lithium is the internal charging sistem of the motorcycle. Especially for older bikes, I mean it was surely optimised for the chemistry and requirements of the lead acid batteries. Would that hurt the lithiul battery in the long run and reduce the lifespan of it? Lithium is very picky to the voltage applied when almost full.. Abused lithium batteries tend to have incresed internal resistance as a result and that would afect the cranking current. Complex subject this.. I personally like Lithium batteries and would put one in my bike, but for now I would probably still go for a lead job untill we get more data from lithium users.

Lion don't like cold like AGM. AGM is the best because it's durable, cheaper than liOn and it's the same lifespan than any other chemistry

  • What he doesnt mention is the bikes charging system is completely different than his little "battery tender". In the real world, use the type that came with the bike.He doesnt mention if a bms is built in to the li-po .AGM,FLA and Gel lead acid batteries all have different peak Charge voltages required for long-life.These voltages are set by the bikes regulator and non-adjustable.A li-po with a good bms would take alot of maintenance out of my life and a good bms means it would disconnect the battery before it killed itself from low voltage and protect itself from to high a voltage.For reference my Mazda b2200 has an FLA in it from Walmart that is 18yrs old and it still starts.!

  • I went from lead acid to Lithium in my previous motorcycle (I never should have sold it with that battery in it). The best advantage was weight and size. I ended up with over half of my battery tray for space for extra tools. I felt extra tools or supplies was by far worth the extra money, especially when on the side of a low traffic road.

    Nunya BidnessNunya BidnessPrieš 5 mėnesių
  • I do like you channel a lot but your research on battery technology is a bit flawed. 30 years involved in industrial batteries. LA batteries CCA is just a function of surface area and reserve capacity is how much fuel (acid) you have in the battery. Very high CCA batteries are all plate and no acid and frankly cycle like shit. Higher reserve capacity cycle well but might not start you bike on a chilly -30 degree day but will absorb abuse much better than high CCA batteries. Your maintenance free LA batteries uses a lead calcium alloy (Google failure modes). The same alloy is used in GEL and AGM. GEL is just a wet battery with silica added. AGM (absorbed glass matt) is the separator and median to store the acid. Great CCA as there is no separator between each plate but pretty useless to prevent internal shorts. So no surprise the wet battery wins the capacity test (more fuel in the tank) and the AGM won the CCA test plates very close together and more of them. Lead calcium alloy does not like being left for long periods of time discharged and the GEL battery will possible be the only technology that you can recover from a very over discharged state. This is a killer statement because how has the battery company stored your battery? Did they leave it discharge and charge it before they went out the door. Also QA in manufacturing is a massive part of how well and long your battery will last. Had my XT660X upside down a couple of times so that rules out the wet option. Really hard to get the GEL option in Australia my preferred technology but my Yuasa AGM in the Tenere is now 6 years old and I should really replace it before it fails as sulphuric acid never stops corroding the lead. Lithium well 14.4 charging voltage is not the correct charging voltage for lithium. It used to be more than 4 volts per cell but then they discovered the higher the voltage the shorter the life. Lithium does not like being over discharge or over charged. Charging issues below zero and plus 40 depending on chemistry (13 different lithium options) they tend to react quiet violently with oxygen and water when the lithium cell is punctured. GEL is still the most reliable and probably the most robust option but a good AGM battery is also a great option.

  • It should be noted that a lithium battery has a hard time cranking a high compression engine (say, a supersport) when it's cold. For example I had the headlights on full beam for over a minute and a half after a night at 0C degrees and it took well over 30 seconds of cranking and only barely sputtered to life. This is in a Superduke 1290 and that bike has a big ass LED headlight. A conventional fluid battery would have no such troubles. Then again, they don't weigh 700 grams...

With electronics sucking power during storage you had best hit it with a charger every other month or so. I left my Goldwing sit and the battery won't turn it over. Left the lithium rated automatic charger on for the winter(gets cold in New York too) and battery died completely. Just my observations. Great tip on waking up lithium battery! Keep up your great irreverent honest reviews!

  • DEPTH OF DISCHARGE.. all lead acids, need to have at least their amp rating to an amount of 11v.. -14v.. which at most is a 80 percent to only have a 20 percent DOD.. lithium are the opposite of that.. can handle down to as per the safe handling of to a DOD of 20 percent, to use 80 percent of the near total battery.. the guys at Tesla say to have a 70 percent use, and keep 30 percent as a safe DOD. reality of a bike, as per car is.. they constantly generate electricity to keep their battery's to an optimum charge to operate as their use of charge is being drained which sometimes can mean their not being drained as much as what some make out that they are.. as to why it is lead acids have an optimal amount at only 20 percent to leave 80 percent as needed to operate properly.

  • So called cafe racers are exactly what they look like. A hacked up POS. Why the hell anyone would do that is beyond me. Just part the thing out so people can restore a good bike that just needs a few parts. I think the whole concept of cafe bikes is senseless now because 75 percent of the bikes ( not harley,or Indian ) sold now are capable of going faster than most riders are REALLY capable of. But if that is what it takes to get someone riding and not protesting or some shit, I'll take that as a win for the riders. And if you do have to build one PLEASE Please sell as many parts as you can. SELL not gouge. Thanks

For me, the choice was a no-brainer: a Li-Ion batt that was as cheap as a middle range classic battery (for my bike lead based batts prices range from ~40 to ~90 €). ---------- I paid 65€ shipment included for a Skyrich HJTX9 that will last longer (2,000 charging cycles vs 300), is loaded in 6' and kept in shape in 15'' with a 25€ all-purpose loader (inst. of 12hrs). And my bike dry weight dropped from 233 to 229 Kg. No-brainer.

  • Nope. Your LiFePo was crap. I use A123 cells, only 5Ah. I took 8 pieces and spot welded my own battery. No need for balancer. Would never, never change a thing. Works for years in three bikes, also in the wintertime, much more power (cranking amps). Not drained after some month in the garage. Finally i`ve got rid of the never ending Pb crap trouble: each year a new one, each winter : wont start (what a fuck).
