    2011 Dorsoduro 750 Battery or something else?

    I recently changed my battery on my 2011 Dorsoduro 750, i bought a inexpensive battery now I'm paying the price. The bike was running fine before the battery change, now when i start it it idles slow and constantly backfires is this a coincidence that something else went wrong? or would a cheap battery make the bike ride like crap? if so what would be a good battery to buy so i can fix this problem thanks.

    Our bikes are particularly sensitive to weak batteries. Lots of good reviews about the the Yuasa YTX14H-BS, which is an upgrade from the stock battery, but still a standard lead acid type. I went with a Lithium Iron Phosphate. It's much lighter and has served me well.

    Yuasa is the way to go... or lithium.

    I think lead-acid has a higher storage capacity but lithiums tend to last longer (7 yearsish i think), lighter, and generally more expensive.

    Weight for weight or size for size, lithium has wayyyy more capacity than lead acid.
