About our JMT lithium batteries
Here at Two Tyres we recommend these JMT lightweight lithium motorcycle batteries, which weigh just 30% of your bike’s standard battery. For this YB12-FP fitment, this results in a saving of over 3.2kg over your stock battery.
Unlike some motorcycle battery brands, JMT batteries are not made in the Far East. They are manufactured in Germany and subject to rigorous testing and strict quality control. They are the OE fitment for some motorcycle manufacturers, including KTM and all of our JMT batteries come with a 24-month warranty.
Lithium motorcycle batteries have just 10% of the self-discharge rate of a lead-acid battery, meaning you can leave it for months and the battery won’t die. Every JMT lithium battery we sell comes with a built-in battery condition indicator. With a single button press you can check the charge level of the battery.
JMT lithium-ion motorbike batteries use iron phosphate (LiFePO4) as the cathode material and use the lithium-polymer process in their manufacture. This means that they will not catch fire or explode in normal operation, which can happen with the cheap, low-quality lithium batteries which are less stable.

Please note that only suitable chargers may be used for charging. We recommend this NOCO Genuis 1 battery charger which charges both normal and lithium batteries.
For the maximum recommended charging currents, please refer to the technical data below:
Under no circumstances should chargers be used which attempt to de-sulphate deep-discharged batteries under 10 volts with a voltage of more than 14.9 volts before they begin the actual charge. The maximum charging voltage of 14.9 volts must never be exceeded. Recommended charging current 1A and maximum charging current 12A.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
I wasn't sure the size inner tubes I needed, so rang. They were extremely helpful, friendly and gave me the information I needed. Within 5 minutes I had got my answers, tubes ordered, paid and receipted - wow. I am usually cautious about using someone for first time, and not local (I live in Notts). I do recommend Two Tyres. Great job guys.
Called up and was able to get an appointment for the same day to replace both tyres on my BMW R1200 GSA. Not only was it great to get seen so quickly, compared to the 5 week wait I had been quoted by Motorrad, but Chris was able to offer some advice and guidance on which tyres best suited my needs. I cannot praise the service enough from Chris and the team and I will definitely be back for my next set of tyres!
Great service from these guys, I ordered on line and accidentally ordered two items the same, maybe clicked twice waiting for the page to change. They called me to check this wasn't a mistake (which it was) and immediately refunded me for the accidental purchase and sent out just one item. I know I'll be using them to get my tyres & tubes in future.
