Lithium-iron (LFP / LiFePO4) battery for KTM 790 Duke

Hi guys,

I would like to change my battery with a smaller and lighter one. As far as I understand for that purpose, the battery it must be Lithium-Iron. For me it will be an extra bonus the fact that - I'll have a little more space under the seat. So I can install my gps tracker with antenna pointing up which will give me а more precise, trouble-free and fast positioning. I guess I'll have room for a set of tools too (the basic ones plus a tire repair kit)

If some of you already have experience with this, please share: Manufacturer, model, size, etc..

For now, I've come to this:
Shorai LFX19A4-BS12 (12V, 19Ah, Cold Cranking 285), Dimension 88 x 86 x 148 mm (height x width x length), Weight 1048g...but there are many other alternatives.

Unfortunately in my country such batteries for my bike are not available and I will have to order online. That is why I would be happy to explore the options and hear your opinion on the subject before I proceed with the order.

Thanks in advance

Cheers
