    Only bad things I have heard of This battery is some said they tested it to be 310, some said it melts the posts and the cables get hot as hell if the bike doesn’t start in 5-6 secs. That does point to high cca, so I suppose there is plenty of torq .

    Nobody you would know... not from the site and melting posts or cables is not really a battery problem, rather the rest of the system is not upto it.
