I know lithium ion and nicad batteries for my tools have different charger..
How do i know if my motorcycle can charge a lithium battery??
i have a 2014 yamaha stryker
Short answer, yes. Longer answer, maybe maybe not. IF the Lithium Ion battery is fully charged when you install it, the bike should be able to keep it fully charged. Lithium Ion batteries do not tend to lose their charge rapidly just sitting there with nothing on. It takes a special charger to charge them to begin with. Colder days, you need to "wake up" the batter with a couple hits of the starter or turning the headlight on, automatic with the key on most bikes. They simply won't give full power until you "wake them up". I am assuming you are talking about a replacement motorcycle battery, not some random lithium battery in this case. One problem is the lithium is much more expensive than the lead acid battery, and if you let the voltage fall to even relatively high levels (sometimes as much as 11 volts) it can ruin the battery totally. Lead acid can be much more forgiving. Leave your key on with a lithium, you could kill it beyond recharging. Lead acid batteries this is not the case, and lead acid batteries can be refreshed with fresh acid, once a lithium is gone, it's gone, there's no saving it. I would rethink why you want a lithium battery. It does save weight and often size, but I see no real advantages over the standard battery in use.
