    Try googling some of the e-waste recycling companies in SA. Maybe they can keep a few aside for you. Be careful with them Lithium batteries

    Go chat to the tech support companies that have repair centers - like Incredible Connection, Acer, HP...
    Everybody crashes.
    Some get back on and ride again.
    Some don't.
    Some can't.

    Does it have to be a laptop battery or will any lithium battery do?

    I have a (totally dead) lithium battery for one of those portable LCD TV/DVD player things. Only problem is its up North and I will only be there towards the start of July... How many do you need? I could also ask around

    May I ask what project, or is it classified?

    Do you normally ride the CBR1000RR or the twister?
