Post this in the sponsor section and one of our suppliers will hook you up. Mike at Riders Discount or Mary at Superbike Supply will let you know what they can do.: wink:

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I just picked up a Battery Tender Lithium battery. I've only had it for a month. I've swapped it back and forth from my stunt bike to my 05 ZX10. So far it has performed great its rated at 240 cca. And weighs only 1.7lbs light and powerfull. On Saturday I put it to the test on my stunt bike. Had a very wet, cold, and windy lot session. So I had my grip heaters set to high keeping my hands nice and toasty. And even on the occasion both my fans kicked on it kept up. The bike remained very responsive even at low idle.

I just put one of these in my gen 3 and it works pretty well. I went with the 120cca because it was cheaper I would recommend the 240 CCA at least. The temps here have dipped into the 30's and cold starts can be a pain. I ordered from summit racing, they had free shipping and no sales tax.
As far as tires are concerned I actually found the best deal at a local dealership, call around you might be surprised.

I doubt anyone can beat Mike at Riders Discount. Just PM him and he'll send a paypal money request.

I have angel gt's on my bike. Only problem is they last so long I never get to use my Nomar tire changer.

If it's a commuter bike I would just stick with a yuasa battery for years of trouble free life.
