Speedohealer. Might as well get all you can from your current battery. Get your milage and speed readings accurate.

On this note, does anyone have a shot of the Shorai next to the stock battery?

Oh, and I would get the speedohealer first unless your speedo isn't off. Then it is kind of pointless. Mine was barely off with the stock setup, but quite a bit off after I went +1/-1 on the sprockets.

This is a Shorai LFX18 next to a Yuasa FTZ12S.
The height and width is the same, but the Shorai is 20mm thinner.
Shorai supplies several sheets of adhesive-backed foam padding to accommodate various battery box dimensions.
Yuasa = 9.9 lbs, Shorai = 2.2 lbs.

Did you mean -1/+1? So you got 15/41 now? How do you like that gearing? Asking cause I know you're pretty familiar with your bike, assuming you've tried other gearing too?

So if you went down 1 on the front, and up one in the rear....how is that different from the stock gearing ?
