That top looks like it has a removable cover where the acid is added - AGM I think.

Ok.. I pulled my seat off.

Its a Yuasa YTZ7S for the brand / size.

And..... Drum roll please....... It says electrolyte filled.
So there you go. Lead acid.
It is not a Lythium ion.

I bet a 10 amp/hr lythium weigh less and give us more cca.

Ok I just ordered a Shorai Lithium battery -LFX09L2-BS12

I went with a 9 vs a 7 to get a few more CCA 135 vs 102

battery dimensions are the same- Lenght 4.45in, Width 2.28in, Height 3.5in

Weight for the 9 is 1.27lbs
Weight for the 7 is 1.06lbs
Weight of the stock is around 4.5lbs per Yuasa site, so not a huge savings, but it all adds up.

The length on the Shorai is slightly bigger than ours... 4.25 vs 4.45 so might need to cut a bit on the base of the box in the bike... I'll see when it arrives.

Thanks for checking. Let us know when it comes in. The Shorai looks nice & $100 less than what I was going to get.

I got mine online.
Sears.com, but subs out the orders to dvolt.
I got my previous one there.
They were the cheapest + free shipping.
Had no issues last order so got from them again.
$110 shipped with tax.
I should have right around Christmas.

Wait till u feel how light weight they are.
Makes u leery it will even crank a bike.
Love technology!

What about a Ballisitic 4 Cell EVO 2 (100-010)

94 Dollars on Hard Racing website.

13.6V, 135 CCA, 8A/H, 2.5(W)/2.5(L)/4.25(H), .98lbs

Higher Voltage, CCA and A/H than stock. .3lbs less than the Shorai. Only 94 bucks!
