Ballistic Performance 8 Cell EVO2 Battery

The 8 Cell EVO2 model is our primary product. The 8 Cell model will work with everything from 450cc MX bikes to 1000cc multi-cylinder motorcycles. This battery is robust, impact resistant, water resistant, and has more starting punch than 90% of all the powersports lead-acid batteries available. Most motorcycles in this range use an OEM battery that weighs up to 10.7lbs. The 8 Cell Ballistic Performance Components EVO2 Battery weighs a little over 1.5lbs. That is a weight savings of 9.3lbs for less than $160! If your powersports vehicle has a modified motor or operates in extreme conditions then we would recommend upgrading to the 12 Cell for added durability.

  • Dimensions: 112MM (L) x 60MM (W) x 103MM (H) Measured from top of terminal
  • Available with the Negative Terminal on the Right or Left
  • Weight: 825 grams (1.81 lb)
  • Voltage (Charged): 13.6V
  • Amperage: 15 Pbeq A/H
  • Cold Cranking Amps: 275 CCA
  • Operating Environment: -18°C (0°F) to 60°C (140°F)
  • Typical Applications: 1000cc and under multi-cylinder motorcycles and 450cc singles.

Note: Ballistic Batteries may not be a drop in replacement, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. See Ballistic / Yuasa Comparison charts below for detailed measurements and weights.

Your powersports vehicle is the pinnacle of modern technology. It is made with the latest lightweight, high tech materials to be the most high performance vehicle on the road, lake, track or trail.

Ballistic Performance 8 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
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
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
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
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

Jason S: I think so. Have you gone to the Ballistic site yet? There, you can enter your bike year, make, and model, and it will suggest a battery for you. You can also call them. I've melted two of them, and I'm trying to figure out why. So, my advice would be to check your charging system first; make sure your regulator is healthy, etc. Nov 13, 2014

jeff f: should work fine. use the packing foam to fit in battery box (evo's are much smaller than oem batteries). just cut to fit. don't forget to put foam on the bottom. vibration is a battery's worst enemy. also order with the terminals oriented like your existing battery (unless you have long cables that will reach either side).

Andre Fraga F:
Yes i think! but you will need to adjust the battery hole with foam! The battery is a little small! Inside the battery box has a foam type, You can use!
See on instruction for batterry sizes!

A shopper asked: Lithium batteries requires a special charger... but could I still jump start it like a normal lead acid battery should it be drained? Oct 14, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Zachary M: Yes. They jumpstart the same as a lead acid battery. Be very careful to not let lithium batteries completely discharge as it can damage them. I let mine completely discharge from a parasitic draw and I believe it negatively affected the cranking capacity.

A shopper asked: Will the Ballistic 8 volt EVO2 fit in the battery compartment of a 2003 Yamaha FZ1? Feb 24, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Your 2003 Yamaha FZ1 takes a YT14B-BS battery. According to Ballistic Performance's comparison chart linked in the product description, the 8 Cell is the correct one for your bike. It is a little smaller than a standard motorcycle battery so we would suggest getting some foam padding from a hobby shop and cut it to fill the space. May 2, 2012

Frost785: Dimensions (Standard): 4.5" (L) x 2.5" (W) x 4.25" (H)

just measure where your battery goes for me the batter was smaller then the space i cut some foam that came with the battery to keep it snug. Haven't even charged my battery once or even thought about it.
