Shorai Batteries

Are there any issues with cold weather starting?
Reports seem to indicate the Shorai works better in cold weather than the cylindrical cell A123 based batteries:

— from a new Shorai dealer, stress testing the LFX batteries —

I got the LFX09 battery yesterday and put it thru its paces…WOW is all I can say. I froze the battery, and repeated starts…zero issues except when frozen solid; cranked and it was sluggish,so I left the key on for 15 seconds and hit it again and she spun right up, that was with the battery at -5 degrees F!
And that was on a 12.5:1 1109 Kawasaki ZRX1100 with 20/50 oil and your LFX09 135 CCA battery, rather than the recommended LFX14! So I’m sure the LFX14 is going to be an awesome performer over the long haul for this bike size, even at very low temps.Pete Aronson
