Ballistic Performance 16 Cell EVO2 Battery 3.9 5 35 35
Don't buy this!!!! Don't buy this battery OR the overpriced charger! I bought my 8-cell in Feb of 2014. Waited for warm weather and began using it May. Last week (Nov 2014) I bought Ballistic's charger to "balance charge" the battery, removed the black BMS port cover to begin the balance charging process and discovered the port was loaded with corrosion so bad that one of the 5 pins was entirely gone. Now I'm stuck with a battery I can't properly charge and a specialized charger I don't need. I contacted Ballistic and they are completely unwilling to replace the battery, claiming I've damaged it. I bought the charger through Schnitz Motorsports and they are also unwilling to return it because it is a used electrical item. In summary, I'm out $300 for a battery that doesn't work in the cold like a standard lead or gel battery. It's ONLY good quality is that it is 6 or 7 pounds lighter than a standard battery. Whoopee! Honestly, I've never dealt with a company so unwilling to stand behind their product. If I lived near their headquarters, I'd launch both the charger and battery through the front windows of their building. November 25, 2014
Very very good Sim, eu recomendo!! Mais compacta e com maior tempo de duração! Apesar de ser menor, na própria caixa da bateria você pode utilizar o acabamento interno para compensar o tamanho da baterria que é um pouco menor! November 13, 2014
huge difference in starting bike Installed in a 2001 Hayabusa; installation was easy, battery is good quality. Engine cranked and started really fast. I ride most of the year in VA so ill see how it fares over the winter season. I expect alot better than my lead acid batteries in the past. Awesome product. November 10, 2014
A battery for dedicated purposes, unreliable, expensive, necessary evil? You decide! This is my second Ballistic. The first one, used as a backup, started to perform badly just after two years of seeing very little action. These batteries are small, light, pack a punch and are great as a portable spare. The drawbacks are price, poor performance at low temperatures, and in my opinion more unpredictable and unreliable than a standard batt. Why I insist on these? Well I like the idea, they are easy to carry on a plane, shed weight off the bike, in concept there are the path to the future. Would I recommend them? Well, yes and no. It all depends what you want to achieve. I did not get much after sales support when my battery started to play games. I did not get an invoice from Revzilla either that supports my warranty. A word of warning: Be very meticulous in ordering the right post location for your battery as these come with Left or Right ground. If you order the wrong one you have two issues: 1. the fitting will be difficult because the posts have a L shaped plastic shield and going over those with the wires will surely break them (happened to me). Also, wrong post location may lead to connecting the battery the wrong way and frying all circuits! Yes, I did that too but since I had a ground cutoff switch I realized my mistake seconds from disaster. October 20, 2014
no more corrosion This battery was easy to install, just use the foam that comes in the box to fill in the additional space that will be in your battery tray. You may have a little bit of trouble making your battery leads reach the terminals, but with a bit of fancy footwork and clever thinking you should be good to go with the stock set up. I do recommend purchasing the ballistic battery quick charger set up as well, it comes in handy if your bike sits for too long. That being said, I have let mine sit for two months and it started up with no issues. September 29, 2014
Compact and Powerful I ordered this battery because I needed the smallest battery possible because I bobbed the tail of the bike and real estate is at a minimum. I assumed I was going to run into cranking issues as the bike is a 1000cc Vtwin sportbike. (2002 Aprilia RSV Mille) However up until this point I have had ZERO issues with the battery, the bike fires right up every time. Some reviews say that the battery doesn't do well in cold conditions but I live in south Louisiana so that doesn't happen too often and if it does I drive something with a heater. September 29, 2014
Works great in warmer weather but watch out for the cold Bought this since I wanted to try a smaller battery and my Yuasa was due for a replacement. I also got tired of hooking up my tender to it all the time and wanted to see what all the rave about with lithium batteries. Couldn't believe how small and light it was. It seems to work well in warmer temps and engine cranks up on the first try. However, cold weather starts really suck and I'm worried I might damage my sprague clutch when it cranks and winds down. I have to hit the starter a few times and wait in between each attempt to wait for the battery to "warm up". Once the battery is ready, it works as it should. I only recommend this battery for folks who live in warmer climate and I'll probably get a regular battery next time around. I also noticed (as they advertise) that no tender needs to be hooked up to it and I can let the bike sit for a long period of time to have the bike start up on the first try. April 28, 2014
Expensive but worth it...so far I bought the Ballistic 8-Cell EVO2 battery because I was sick of the traditional/ancient lead acid batteries. I don't race so the weight savings doesn't really appeal to me too much but it really is significantly lighter. The smaller size is nice but it actually make's it a little more awkward with battery straps and cables being far too loose now. On the other hand, the small size made it possible for me to twist my connection points to get to the terminals. Which brings me to my next point, it would be nice if Ballistic made the batteries with reversed posts for those bikes that don't have the space to flip the battery in a different orientation to make it fit. Those are small potatoes though because the power output on this battery is noticeably better than my past lead acid batteries. I've never had my bike start up faster, and has plenty of juice for my 750cc Ducati Monster. I honestly haven't had it installed for very long or started up in really cold conditions so I might have to report back in a year or so with more durability testing, but based on first impressions, this is definitely a huge improvement from the old days. Lastly, the price is quite steep and I don't really know if it's worth it yet, but I can tell you it will probably be very difficult for me to switch back to a lead acid once this one eventually dies. Overall, I am very pleased with the battery so far and would recommend it to anyone that is just fed up with old battery technology. April 23, 2014

richard m: this is for my dragbike. it should help me loose weight and fit my box dimensions. high compression ,so i want great starting power for my starter, even though i have compression releases. will soon find out how this works. Nov 1, 2013
Christopher J asked: hello, I have a 2009 Yamaha R1. I replaced the stock battery about a year ago with a OEM replacement. I noticed its getting harder and harder to start after it gets hot. I know this is kinda a normal thing amongst R1 owners but when my battery was new, it had no problem starting at any temp. Well I figured If I get a battery with higher cranking amps, my problem should decrease dramatically. Many of my friends did this with their R1's and their hard starting problems are gone. My question is: Will this battery fit my bike? If not, what other batteries should I be looking at? I really need a 12 cell battery to fit my needs on this bike. Oct 14, 2013

Christian N: Hi, I replaced my lead acid battery with one of these Ballistic units on my Honda VTR1000. It's a tough engine to start in the morning due to the big pistons and long stroke. An 8 cell battery was recommended but didn't quite have the guts to turn it fast enough on the first attempt when very cold. ( It did always start though after a few attempts) I ended up replacing it with a 12 cell. That said, 4 cylinder bikes are easier to start. Since then I also learnt about waking these batteries up, which made a huge difference. I.e. leaving the lights on for a few minutes before you crank in the morning or giving it a quick crank waiting then trying again and it starts with twice the vigor. (This info is on the Ballistics site). This does not apply to a warm bike though. I found the Ballistic batteries to be very strong when warm. I have since bought an 8 cell for my SV650 track bike, which is also a heavy lump to start and it's been perfect hot or cold. The bike feels so much lighter with this battery. Shop with confidence though. These batteries are very good and the Ballistic support is superb! Good luck. Oct 14, 2013

DWAYNE B: Christopher,

I installed mine on a 2004 Ducati 999s. In order to make the upgrade work I had to mount the battery sideways and fabricate a a retention strap for the battery. A bit of enginuity, but it was worth it. Sorry I could not be more helpful, all I know are the Italian bikes...the fact that the battery is so small and light made things easier as well. Ride safe...

andre h: Not sure. I purchased the 8 cell for my Ducati 848 and the Ballistic battery was roughly half the size of the stock (Yuasa Battery) and a fraction of the weight. To achieve a good fit I used the foam that came with the battery but I didn't have to make any modifications. Hope this helps, good luck. Apr 10, 2014
