    They do. A solid AGM is ~12.7v max. Lithium is ~13.3v. Times and technology are changing fast in the Lithium world. Cold start is mostly a thing of the past, and CCA is through the roof along with a restart button (on the ones I offer) if you leave the key on, as they have a circuit board that shuts off voltage as needed and they'll also shunt over-charging; https://gtmotocycles.com/collections/electronics/category_batteries?sort_by=best-selling

    Thanks Todd / GuzziMoto for your input. As the Lithium batteries are now doing service in snowmobiles, I figured that most of the cold starting issues had been slayed. I was mostly asking to see if the higher initial voltage would help avoid the 'dead button syndrome'. She starts like a charm as long as the ECU lets things happen...

    Guys...I am new to this forum and have a '14 V7 Racer. Moved up to Anchorage a few months ago...(I don't know that they know how to say Moto Guzzi, let alone find somewhere to service it). Anywho, bike was in storage for three months, had original battery in it. It literally died at the first fuel station stop once i got it started up for the first time from storage. So...went and ordered a new battery from "a local motorcycle shop here in Anchorage...that battery after days of thinking it was something else... was bad. Today, i searched all over Anchorage for a battery...ended up going to "Battery and Bulbs" shop. They set me up w/ a Duracell, and the bike kicked right off...all of that said, i was racking my brain up here until i started reading these threads. As such, thank you!!!

    FYI - I have the MPH pigtail/fix that I bought from Mike at RPM and ended up not needing it. Hit me up if'n any of you need one...1/2 price to your door.
