I got the bike out for the year today. However, I noticed that I had not winterized it at all! No drained carbs, battery left in it all winter. Of course the battery is dead.

So, I am looking to replace the battery. My question for you guys is is it worth it to go lithium? Battery Hookup has 8Ah Headway cells for $10 a piece right now. I can simply go with 4 of these and have a battery perfectly capable of starting my bike.

What do you bike owners say? I know some of you have messed around with lithium or capacitors. What have been your results?
