The Shorai site showed every battery out of stock.

That's because they're in the midst of a design change. Their site says they'll be available some time in April.

They are a little pricey, but pretty equivalent to the Yuasa for my bike.

I just put an Odyssey AGM batt in the Rocket along with a PC8 fuse block from Eastern Beaver. With this I was able to take a bunch of accessories off the battery posts which really cleaned the underseat area up. The fuse block is connected through a relay for 6 of the outputs and 2 are unswitched.
I ran the cruise control, the gps and the led lights through switched connections and left the 12v outlet unswitched. This left only the headlight harness/relay, the battery tender and the PC8 harness itself directly connected to the battery.
Jim, the guy who owns this business, makes quality stuff and gets it out to you quickly. I also bought the H4 relay kit from him to reroute the headlight power directly from the battery instead of through the ignition switch (common R3 problem, ignition switch burnouts)--http://www.easternbeaver.com/...and you've got to admit, it's a great name for a business (although Cheryl was quite curious as to what was in the package when it arrived)...







Here's where I relocated the ignition switch from the hard to reach stock location above the triple tree...

Looks like a nice set up.  If I go with lithium, that would give me the space to put in an aux contact block, otherwise I have very little room.
maybe the sky IS falling

I have enough room in the Victory to go with a small power generating plant !!

Nice job. I currently have a dead battery, and a sitting bike.
