The price is perfect and a week later from the first pair, I've ordered a second pair just to have it for replacement but, it never arrive. It's since November I think. The only downside for chinese parts.
I deleted the white color led wire. I didn't planing to use it. Of course the 3rd wire on the hole of the pcb would be a tight fit, but it could fit if you want it.

Hey Leroy,
Can a small battery go where the electrics box is?

and then put the electrics, under the seat?
The battery at the front looks all big and heavy.

How thick is the caliper bracket? is it aluminium?

Keep going, we can can finish this

The smallest battery I can find in reasonable price is not too smaller from the oem.

It's from 2mm metal sheet. It won't be the bracket that I will use. The final bracket will be 6mm thick if I use metal or 7mm aloy.

Too much damn hours left on this but there is no other way to get that finish. Ofcorse the end result will be the bigest reward.


Assuming with your answers that I should move the battery to an other place to avoid the heat?

Leroy, this bike is turning out beautiful. Yeah, the battery is hard to ignore mounted off the engine like that. I don't know where else you can hide it, but keep up the good work. I love this build

This battery become a big pain in the ass. I'm trying to find a solution.
Like bonehead said, I had try to fit it where the box with the cdi is now.
But I let it pass cause I was had to remove the lower bolt of the suspension and move it upwards to fit or pull the battery.
Then again, you don't change it very often, so now that I have the box, I will test fit it and see how it goes...

That's more like it Leroy, will clean up the front very nicely,
... and you're not going to be sitting on the back so comfort can take second.

Can get Antigravity Battery plenty of CCA and small but cost a few sheckles, just a thought

I have a lithium battery to the K3 for 2 years now and it's working fine. Skyrich is the brand. It's the half money cost but I can't spend that money right now. Time is pressing and my budget too.

I have try to make the back seat as comfy it gets with out to make huge at the end.
