Question An Option to the AGM Battery--????

Would this be an optional battery for the vn750s...??? Reads pretty good...

It does list an 05 vn700 (LFX14L2-BS12) and I assume that is supposed to take in the vn750...

Looks like it should be a good thing,although kinda pricey,It appears to be a Lithium type battery,Did you see how light those things are?

Didn't list one for my VN1600. A lithium Ion battery is about the longest lasting available. Seeing more and more things with those batteries.

2017 Indian Roadmaster (current ride)
2003 VN1600A (Traded August 2017 to #1 son for a Bushmaster AR)
2001 VN750 bought 4/19/08 w/2309 miles(Sold April 2010 with just over 12,000 miles)
VROC #33035

I looked and they listed one for the 1500,but the N model has the five gallon tank and internal fuel pump.I read some where, maybe on Gadgets fixit page that they,(Internal fuel pump bikes) also had a bigger battery.this leaves me wondering if the battery listed is correct for the N model 1500.
Update: according to the Yuasa battery chart the D ,E .N and the 1600 are the same part # so that didn't help. Either They are both wrong or both right at this point I am just confused.

Cheap isn't always better. Personal experience with a cheap but short lived Chinese made battery.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

It is a bad thing to pay too much for something, but usually worse to pay too little.
The cheap item usually does not live up to expectations and must be replaced again at your cost. JM2CW

Nope, wasn't thinking cheap, thinking maybe a better alternative to what is available with the AGM, like 210CCA & less than 2# with a 2yr. warranty...
We know and use AGM batteries, but maybe there are better batteries being made with newer technology...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
