Default Best battery brand?

I'm planning on putting the 2013 e-start on my 2011 here soon and was wondering which battery has been the best for my fellow GG riders? I was thinking of a WPS lithium ion battery as they seem to have a good reputation.

Secondary question, I believe the YTZ7S is the correct size for my '11. If anyone knows, is there a larger lithium ion that fits?

I have the Antigravity 240cca battery.
I barely touch the starter button and the bike lights off.
I haven't even charged since installed, 5 months ago.

I've had great luck with the WPS battery.
It's been in the bike for 3 yr, never charged it and the bike sits a lot.
Never used the kick start since I put it in.

I use a Shido since three years and I am very happy. I have once got it replaced under warranty as the first one I bought died after just 5 months.

Its very light, needs no maintenance and does not like to be stored fully charged. And: it is cheap compared to others. No clue if you can get one in the US.

Default 8 Year old Shorai

I have a Shorai and I have had it since 2011. I also use the Shorai charger. As soon I roll the bike into the garage I connect the battery via a cord extension that tucks back into the seat. The extension comes with the charger.

I think the Shido is the same as the WPS just under a different brand name if I recall correctly.

+1 on the Shorai. Bought it for my 13, 5 years later swapped it over to my 18GP and it hasn't missed a lick. Running a fan all the time too. It's a necessity down here in Costa Rica.

No clue honestly. Is this a bad thing? I mean are WPS reliable?

No, they have a very good reputation.

I have an SSB LH5L-BS in my 18 GP300. Done a swag of stuff as the electric leg never worked from new, but it is as good as gold now.
