Just put one in mine about 3-4 months ago, I'll get back to you on it in 3-4 years. Actually I now have the same Deltran 240ah battery in all 3 bikes. They seem to take less care & I only throw them on the battery tender if they've sat for a month or more just to top them off. The oldest is only a 11/2 years old so no long term testing here yet. I do like how much faster they start up all my bikes.

Mine is 3 1/2 years old in a 12s. I've accidentally completely discharged it 3-4 times. Juiced it with a regular lead acid battery charger for 2 - 3 minutes, restarted the bike and rode it to completely recharge it. I don't put it on a tender. I have not been babying it.

It will probably catch on fire tomorrow now that I said all this.

Have Shorais in 4 bikes so far...for just about one year.
Shorai chargers on all.
Nothing to report so far other than all is well.
The first Shorai on my R11S died after a few months and Shorai replaced it and it's charger free of charge.
They wanted to see my invoice/receipt.
I still had both boxes...sent it all back in original packaging.

SEQUIM, WA, eh?
I looked at property up there back in '08. Lovely area, for sure.
Not much rain but lots of drizzle.

You are one of the few to figure out the Sequim drizzle, most move here assuming the low rain fall and blue hole mean sunshine , some leave but most stay, our population has been growing by leaps and bounds the last several years .

A retirement community...and a beautiful one.
I was staggered by the high real estate prices back in '08...seemed to be inflated.
I traveled to and bought a place in Scottsdale, AZ instead.
More value for the same price. More torrid heat but the 7 months of winters are paradise.
