The combination of removing 15lbs. of ABS & 15lbs. of battery up top of the 11S made a huge difference in turn in. I've been running Deltran Battery Tender lithium batteries in all 3 bikes for awhile now, about 5-6 years on the oldest. The newest one has the reserve & reset ability plus equal charging of each cell but I've had no problem with the older style either. I use the standard Battery Tender on all of them with no problems. Only the Aprillia really needs the charger as it has a pretty high parasitic drain just sitting but the ZX14 or 11S can sit for long periods without charging. So far I see no downside to the lithium batteries with plusses of less weight, no battery acid to leak & way superior starting ability in all 3 bikes over any AGM battery I've run including the vaunted Odyssey (which weighed a ton).
