    Lithium ion battery EXPENSIVE

    Hi. I'm looking to change the battery and wanted to replace it with a lithium ion, due to the benefits.
    The cheapest I can find is over £100.
    I was wondering if there's another battery size that would fit (as long as its smaller than the original.), that would be cheaper and still provided the adequate power?
    Just seems expensive when some are only £45
    Any advice appreciated.
    Thanks

    Really?  On a 275kg bike, a lighter battery is going to make a difference?

    They are about 3 1/2 kilos lighter. High up on the bike. So yes, it's a real Benifit.
    Also, they've way more cranking power. Less maintenance. Require less charging. Charge much quicker.
    Just can't work out why the vfr1200 lithium battery is so expensive, when some other nikes are almost third of the price.
