Alien Motion Batter Install

*BATTERY*

Got my new lithium ferrous battery in the mail today. got her all set in. came with a foam adapter and everything:






Like a glove.

It came pre-charged, and turned the bike over VERY quickly compared to my old lead acid battery.
It's advertised at 1lbs 13 oz. the stock battery weighs 8.4 lbs. Based on the "joel subtraction" method on my bathroom scale, this is a 6.6lb reduction.

It's also notable that I took a 1.8lb dump right after this.

the battery cost $109
the dump was free.

Spending too much time to make a bike faster than it really needs to be.

Congrats ... I really like how my Alien battery works too. Has never failed even after repeated crankings.
