I'm quite a fan of lithium batteries as they do work and are reliable (they also have a nice habit of not discharging when left to fend for themselves). 

I too looked at the 20ah monster (and ditched it), however mines a 350 so only cranking over half your engine and massively over specified. Perhaps the 650 needs the 20ah? Even if this is the case there are massive weight and space savings on a lithium with the same cca as the OEM part 20+ years after it was built to a price.

Not looking at my notes but I am sure I saved around 15kg, along with now having the open frame look. 

Yes they can explode and I do have some concerns as it new position is under the tank!!! 
However the addition of a volt meter keeps an eye on its health and if it ever were to start over charging. 

Flea bay have a choice and one supplier includes cca specifications.
Though as has been said the way cca are measured is doubtful (I compared 2 or three suppliers physical size v cca) 

For future I have been half considering playing with the idea of two smaller batteries in different positions may be with just one dedicated to starting. 

Have even considered avoiding the new circuit design by leaving it plugged into the trickle charger its on now and running a loss system, the engine needs very little and the lights are now LED.

But in these forums I have found myself to be one of the few that thinks motorcycles should evolve and not remain as they rolled out of the factory!
