I ve been slowly working on my bike. Tonight I made two lightweight Lithium ION 8 cell battery packs. One for myself and one for another member on the forum.

About 2.6lbs. My signature has the thread I created on how to make the packs using the A123 cells. Or I can make you one with a quick disconnect. I have the tack welder so you don’t need to purchase a welder. Seb bought the pack for 50 then added 10 for shipping.

would it be better to build one of these, or repurpose a drill battery? how small/light weight do you think one would need to fire up a very good shape triumph 675? bike only has 2k miles. very fresh.

Id go with an 8 cell pack. I have found that the 4 cell did not have enough cold cranking on the SV displacement. I always had trouble with the 4 cell packs i have made. I havent done the math to get the true amount of cold cranking amps needed to turn the cylinders over. Sure why not... if you have old drill packs that still hold a charge you can repurpose them.

I was able to connect some of the wiring and fuel pump over the weekend. May be this weekend I will have more time.



I also made more A123 battery packs last night because I was bored.

The trailtech is a quick 10 minute install. I have the Speed, Tach, Radiator fluid temperature model.



the wire you see on the gas tank is what I use to hold the tank up while I am working inside the airbox.
