Spent this morning installing a 12 volt system on the Rapide. Helllooooo adequate lighting... so nice to make your acquaintance

I'd like to see some full shot photos of your Vincent, it looks nice.

I've got to find a 12V battery to fit inside a hollowed out stock battery shell.  Li-Ion won't work due to voltage requirements of the Grosset.

Nice.

What are the voltage requirements that the Lithium batteries won't work with? Mine puts out ~13.8V which is roughly what a normal 12V battery puts out when fully charged.

I can't believe I didn't know about eSquad jeans. Seriously, does anyone know how to get them in the US?

Here they are shown supporting the full weight of a Hummer.

^You'll get used to it pretty fast, if you don't switch around.

Probably easier to get used to than going from standard shift to race shift.

I thought race shifting (down=up shifting) was part of the deal with right shifters. At least, it was so for the Enfield Bullet 350 I once rode.

The HP4 is amazing, but I wouldn't even bother - I'd never come close to using all the performance and technology. I'd get an S1000RR instead; heck, I'd get the S600RR that was rumored a while back if they made it.

What you aren't taking into account is the fact that below 9.2 volts a Shorai is effectively drained. Now this Vincent and the 100hp Vincent Egli parked next to it only produce about 100 watts. If a plug is fouled, the gas is a little crappy or I get stuck behind a friendly law enforcement agent in gridlock were I really shouldn't shut off my lights even though the generator isn't spinning fast enough to charge the battery and the voltage drops...I'm stuck on the side of the road. The Rapide isn't a huge issue as it has a magneto but the Egli has a battery coil. In short, Shorai batteries and vintage bikes are not the best idea.

I've got about 100 bikes right now in the garage with 4 different shift patterns (left hand up for first, right hand up for first, left hand down for first and left side hand shift). It just takes concentration.
