I know I've seen a few posts about AntiGravity batteries but the previous posts mentioned that the battery had to go in sideways and meant it was hard to hit the restart button.

I was on their website and it looks like they made a battery that fits normally (doesn't have to go in sideways) and the restart button would be on top. Just wondering if anyone has this battery yet? I ordered it but it says it's on backorder (which I would think means a lot of people have ordered it - but maybe for other motorcycles... idk)

Looks interesting but what is the actual warranty?

Looks like 3 years from the website. I ordered it and they said they should have more in stock this week so I'll probably get it early next week. I'll update everyone then but it sounds like a pretty awesome battery and others posts/reviews on it seem great

I have a lithium battery on my Scout.
I didn't purchase it, it came as a perk when I gave my bike up to develop the Big Bore kit.

It will be coming out. I used them on track bikes in the past and they have a purpose for sure, but I found out once again, they still need some improvement.
if you live in a warm climate, you likely won't have problems. But once it gets chilly, it sucks.. some mornings it takes 4-5 start attempts to warm the batt enough to turn the engine. In the past just having the key on lighting the lights up for a minute or 2 was enough, but since I have LEDs and Modern bikes have more efficient electrics, that old trick doesn't work so well anymore.
in short, IMHO unless you live in a warm climate, or are trying to save every bit of weight possible, I see no point in them.

I've seen people mention the cold weather issues. How cold are we talking? I live in southern California so it never gets crazy cold here as in other parts of the country

Just an update.

Installed this over the weekend and it works great! The battery sits upright but is a little shorter than the stock battery so there is extra room and the re-start button is easily accessible. The extra CCAs help the bike start right up without any hesitation. Pretty pricy battery but I have no complaints so far

I don't need a battery right now but I am interested to see how long this battery will last. Please keep us posted if you have any issues. Did you buy a special charger with this battery so it won't void the warranty?
