    What would be good is if these other fukkers ran a business correctly ... it must still be 'holiday mode' in their premises


    Whats the shipping cost like?

    Cheaper than Megazip. None of them are particularly cheap on freight but I think that is more about EMS than anything and you also take into account the packing and looking after the GST etc.
    Last 2 times they have been super fast as well.
    We will see this time.

    Well figured out why it was leaving a pool of fuel on the ground and the pump wouldnt prime ... these clamps were not tight enough .... still wont start though but battery has bummed out from all the attempts so its on the charger

    I bought my SSB Drycell battery off the seller with the Lithium battery when i first bought my bike, haven't had a problem with it, my FZR has sat for almost 3 month's before without being started and it fired up easily first go.
    The Drycell's are $83 inc post compared to the Lithium's $199 inc post, pretty sure when i got mine it was $60 inc post,
    they are 2.9kg's heavier than the Lithium battery's though

    Yea the SSBs are great .... mine have sat for ages and still been 100% .... Ive had 2 in 7yrs (approx) and the first one was put into another FZR we built many moons ago , so Im not surprised its time to replace it

    The lithiums weigh nothing as I found out with the one @Frankster had for the drags

    Just be aware that most "normal" battery chargers don't work with Lithium. I bought the cheapest lithium charger I could find and it cost nearly as much as the effing battery!

    Yea had heard that before .... does say this in the blurb though ....

    SSB PowerSport Lithium Batteries are also one of the only Lithium Ion Polymer Batteries that can be charged using normal 12V car battery chargers / alternators

    No special charger required - can be charged using any 12V automotive charger as long as it does not have a pulse, automatic desulphation or rejuvenate mode

    Bike still wont start even with a new battery .... but some success with starter fluid added to the mix

    Hopefully this will get the fuel moving better
