Lithium Battery for 2020 CB500X
on: May 29, 2020, 12:44:33 AM
I am having the worst luck finding a lithium battery that fits the 2020 CB500X

I used revzilla's bike search for a 2019 as there is no 2020 option and shorai came up. I purchased it and when it arrived it did not fit. I returned it.

I also walked into cycle gear gave them the bike info they looked it up and sold me a battery that I took  home and yep it didn't fit. I went back with my battery in hand this time and they said its an odd size they don't carry. Several other local shops also said its an odd size nothing in stock only special order. Anyhow for those that have swapped out the OEM battery for a lithium on the 2020 what lithium did you go with?

Thanks!

Why do you want to swap out a brand new battery-the 2019-2020 battery is already smaller and lighter than the old one wouldn't think it would be that much lighter
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Pretty sure the 19/20 CB500x runs a YTZ8V size battery compared to the 13-18 bikes that have a YTZ10S.

There will be a listing for a lithium replacement to the YTZ8V

Somwhere on his channel Sven Olsen from Norway changes out his battery to save some weight, he throroughly documents it - check his channel:

As a mean Scot, I'd go on a diet to reduce weight before I replaced a good battery!!   :008: :008: :008:
