I fitted a lithium battery to my KTMDuke 390 (similar bike to the BMW)
The weight saving was 3kg! Right where you’d want it most, high up on the bike.

Well worth thinking about in my opinion.
The battery was exactly the same dimensions as the original, in fact the same make, so it fitted straight in.

Finally! A member who is willing to contribute to this forum. I was starting to get bored.

What was the brand?

I'm leaning toward EarthX brand. It comes with 2-3 years warranty.

Exide, same as the OE battery. (UK bike)

Duke 390 though.

I’m sure the BMW will have a similar battery. I bought the Exide because it’s a respected brand and being the same physical size it fitted perfectly.

(Some Lithium batteries are smaller, which is OK but the battery holder might need modifying)
