The extreme lightweight batteries probably will not last 5 plus years, and may present cold weather starting issues. The weight savings, even if considerable, are not worth the additional cost over several years and loss of reliability to me.
+1. And there are probably 3 or 4 different OEM batteries depending on the OP's equipment, so he really should have a dealer or competent Indy handle it and the registration.
