Hi

What is the price of this battery, compared to the "standard" battery?

Greetings,
Hannes

The guy says that they will last at least 3 years and it was $ 76.00 US dollars for the 2.5 a/hr battery, to my door in Canada. I would say it's best to e-mail Joe and check with him on some of these questions. I haven't had a chance to use the bike due to winter still in effect here.

Hey Dave, Is there enough room to fit 2 of those batteries. We go on long rides and that would be an excellent backup system.

Yeah you could easily fit another one in there or go with the next size up which has double the capacity of the one I got. Joe doesn't have a website up yet , but is pretty good about getting back to you by e-mail. WR Dave

Does it charge off your stock system like the new Ebatt lithium or do you have to manually charge ?

It is a direct replacement for the stock battery and charges exactly the same way , no extra charger is required. Here is more info on this product. http://ktmtalk.com/i...Lithium battery http://ktmtalk.com/i...Lithium battery WR Dave.

Good info WR_Dave, this post from JoeT seems to sum it all up for those wanting to shave a couple pounds.

To answer most of the questions I have seen.

1. Cost
$70 for the 2.5Ah 130 for the 5Ah. The weights are ~0.8lbs for the 2.5Ah ad 1.7lbs for the 5Ah. Normally it would be plus shipping but right now I am going to ship for free.

2. How to I connect it?
Basically plug and play. I will be providing bolt/nuts so all that has to be done is connecting the positive battery terminal to the positive wire and like wise on the negative side. Just like a normal battery. HOWEVER, you will need to find a way to keep it tight in the battery box as it is much smaller than the standard battery.

3. Will they charge?
They will charge just like a normal lead acid battery, you don't need to do anything special. However, if your system requires more power than the bike is producing it will eventually drain the battery. If you need more power from the system the battery will not increase the power the bike is putting out.

4. Are they Lithium batteries?
Yes, but they are a completely different chemistry than the batteries that power laptops, cell phones, and Ipods. The chemistry is called Lithium Iron Phosphate.

5. Do you have a website?
No, right now I don't, it is the works.

6. How do we contact you?
PM or email at turnerjo@hotmail.com

7. Is there a warranty?
I am evaluating if/how the warranty will be done. Right now there is not a warranty.

8. What type of payment do you accept?
Paypal, the payment methods will expand when the website is done.

9.What have you put the batteries in?
In different configurations, CBR600, Honda Odyssey minivan, KFX 400 4 wheeler (wifes no flames please), KTM's, and Yamaha's of various sizes. Some have been in for over 2 years.

10. Can you make a special battery different at a different voltage or amperage?
Yes I can,it will be slightly more expensive as it would be a one off but can easily be done. contact me with your needs.

Modirators-if I have broken any rules let me know so 1. Don't do it again and 2. Fix it so it can happen again.

Thanks
Joe

Does it have more "cranking" power for the starter, or does it have the same power capacity of the stock battery? I might need a battery that can provide more juice to the starter motor than the stock battery does.

IT cranks better in my opinion and starts easier because during cranking the battery doesn't suffer from voltage sag like a lead acid type. The voltage stays up allowing easier starting. Again, in my opinion. WR Dave

that's good to hear, I'm just trying to decide if $75 is worth it for such experiment.

Plus one on Joe's Li batteries. I have one of his 5aH batteries in my KTM HTR 350 XCF-W. This battery only weighs 1.6lbs or almost 3lbs lighter than the stock battery. The battery has always reliably E started the engine for over 800 miles with the stock charging AC/DC system (many miles with the fan running) with nary a need for the Battery Tender.

Just what I needed to hear. I ordered the 5AH for $130:thumbsup:

I just got the 2.5Ah I only need the battery to start the bike...lights are still on AC circuit and what not so I think the 2.5ah will work fine for me. We shall see.

Below the turntech battery a plastic sucrets box will fit perfectly. I put waterproof matches, aspirin, Valium, codeine, band-aids, imodium, masterlink and pepcid. When needed removing the seat will not be an issue.
