Lithium battery issue

Hey guys,
So I replaced the stock yuasa with an Ssb lithium ion battery.
Apparently it doesn’t like the one I got as first time I rode it the tc light stayed on and the abs light was flashing.
Put the old battery back in and it stopped.
Anyone ever encountered this?
The new battery did have more CCA than the old one so perhaps that was a factor.

CCA shouldn't be a problem. What is the Ah (amp hour) rating on the LiFePo battery? That's where I've seen the issue. Lots of folks have gone too small with LiFePo batteries to save maximum weight, only to find out the Ah capacity is too low to handle the bike's draw.

Or, you could have just gotten a bad battery. Check the voltage under load. If it drops, there could be a bad cell in there. Also, be sure to use an appropriate charger, if you use one.

There’s the one I got and it doesn’t mention the amp hour rating.

If it sits for awhile, you will want to get a Lithium-capable charger. I got a Battery Tender Jr that you can switch from Lead acid to Lithium. It was $35 on Amazon. Shorai makes one for their batteries but it is fairly expensive.

Yep, I installed a Shorai in my '08 over 5 years ago and it still works fine. I just started my bike for the first time yesterday since putting it in winter storage 7 months ago and it fired right up. I do keep it attached to a Shorai battery maintainer when it will be sitting for long periods but I feel it has been worth it over the years.

I prefer the Antigravity batteries. I use the smallest packaged versions in all my bikes. I have two with their 12cell and two with their 8cell. I have an 8cell in the CBR.

`11 Ducati 1198 SP SuperBike Ducati Corse = The Big Dog

`12 Ducati 1100 SP Hypermotard Ducati Corse = The Hooligan

`12 Aprilia RSV4 Factory Superbike = The Land Rocket

`15 Honda CBR1000RR SP Superbike Repsol = The Last One(!?)

After doing a bit of testing with the stock batttery vs the new one it appears the battery probably exceeds the maximum voltage set by the regulator.
The stock battery was 14volts and the new one was 15 so that could explain what was going on.

I have nothing but praise for my shorai lithium iron batteries.

My CBR1000RR installs RCE 7.5Ah-A lithium iron battery
This is the brand of Taiwan
It was also the battery brand designated by the original PAGANI factory.
Speeding up is much faster
There are no any abnormalities
