Whether you are replacing the battery in your Road, Rally, Speedway or other type of racing motorcycle then you will be searching for the best possible power storage for your vehicles electrical system, both for power starting and running the electrical system. Up until recently that meant a trade off was required between desired battery performance and weight. This could require the use of the heaviest lead-acid battery available as it can be generally said that it is the quantity and size of lead plates that will determine the batteries quality and output capacity. There have been some improvements for lead-acid battery capacity to weight ratio's with the introduction of VRLA, SLA, AGM and others but the weight reductions have been minimal and still basically leave a block of lead as our power storage.
Naturally this goes against all other development actions where generally the lightest weight for strength material would be most desired.
Fortunately this is no longer true, Milbay Australia now have available Motorcycle LiFePO4 Power cells which store their power using one of the lightest metals available, Lithium (Li). Lead acid batteries use one of the heaviest metals, Lead (Pb) in the construction and power storage chemistry.
In such a damading activity like Motorsport safety is always the highest concern. Like all great developments LiFePO4 solves multiple constraints of the preceding technology. Not only are Milbay Automotive power cells only around 1/4 the weight of an equivalent lead acid battery they DONOT contain any liquid or corrasive materials that can be released during impact damage.
In addition the massive weight reduction makes it far more likely that the battery will remain fixed in the motorcycle battery housing and not become a missile in the event of an accident. LifePO4 Power Cells from Milbay Australia are another step towards a safer Racing activity for riders and fans alike.
If your Racing motorcycle operates in a total loss configuration then this is also no problem, in fact our LiFePO4 motorcycle batteries are undoubtedly the best choice for a Total Loss scenario. Milbay LiFePO4 motorcycle batteries are inherently "Deep Cycle" and can handle 1500 + 80% DOD (Depth of Discharge) cycles where as lead-acid battery types will fail after around 200 cycles. Best of all there is no need for one battery to start your vehicle and a second battery to run the electrical system whilst racing.
Milbay LiFePO4 standard replacement motorcycle batteries are a direct replacement for the original heavy lead acid type motorcycle battery and install as per the manufacturer's service manual. The LiFePO4 battery is supplied inside an original style battery case that uses original style bolt on terminals and dimensions.
Milbay LiFePO4 Racing SoftPac batteries are NOT installed inside a traditional plastic case so that drivers and race teams can customise the installation and case materials to take advantage of the smaller form factor of the naked SoftPac design. Milbay LiFePO4 Racing SoftPac batteries generally have the positive and negative cables terminated with a quick release 'Andersons' connector to aid in customisation options for users. Other standard type or custome connectors are available.
Milbay can supply light weight jump starter LiFePO4 battery that can delivery 1200+ CCA's and large capacity for constant jump starts or diagnosis than the answer is 'YES'.

Milbay LiFePO4 Power Cells are a leap forward for Racing motorcycles. Milbay Power Cells are not just a light weight 12V battery that can be run in a total loss electrical system, instead they are a extremely light weight direct replacement for the original heavy lead-acid SLA batteries and produce huge CCA (cold Cranking Amps) under more extreme temperature conditions.
If your racing motorcycle does operate in a total loss configuration then this is also no problem, in fact our LiFePO4 Power Cells are undoubtedly the best choice for a Total Loss scenario. Milbay LiFePO4 Power Cells are inherently "Deep Cycle" and can handle 1500 + 100% DOD (Depth of Discharge) cycles where as SLA and ther lead-acid battery types will fail after around 200 cycles. Best of all there is no need for one battery to start your motorcycle and a second battery to run the electrical system whilst racing.
Milbay LiFePO4 Power Cells can recharge from the alternator just like a standard battery thanks to our innovative starter BMS (Battery Management System).
