The first one went tits up about six months ago.

The only real problem I have had is that my mechanic at first blamed everything that went wrong on the Lithium Battery. It was not the battery's fault on any of those occasions. They just hear the horror stories and believe them.
Si, normal batt tenders are not for use with li batts.

I love the small size/lightness. Maybe someday re-locate the battery under the seat, create an oil tank that fits there also.

Are both your bikes older ones..no alarm , no drain like your 91 in your signature or do you have one with a lithium that also has alarm/immobliser etc?

The last 3 lead/acid batteries Ive replaced were all over 10 years old.
A tender was on them from cradle to grave.

My new Scorpion Ion battery is also on a tender per they battery maker.
