More then enough room to run a pre-filter with a little trim job.

Battery mount

I copied RIDEFREAK's design on this sort of, I used 1" x 1/8" angle iron to make the box, 1" x 1/8" strap for the mounting tabs and fit everything to mount to the cable guide bolt hole in the case and the rear motor mount bolt it's very sturdy. After it was all welded up I lined it with 1/8" rubber, I have a Trail Tech reg/rect mounted on the back of the box too.

Quick question, what is the reason for guys running batteries? I'm planning on a trail tech vapor soon and maybe a small fan for the radiator. Can't think up a need for a battery though, maybe I'm missing something?

Thanks

From everything I've read if you want to run 12v DC you need either a battery or a capacitor, along with a DC regulator/rectifier to convert the AC coming from your stator. I tried originally to go straight AC and the headlights worked but the led turn signals and the horn wouldn't, now that I'm running DC everything works perfectly.

True. I'm on AC only right now, I'll have to switch one leg to DC if I get a fan. I got the turn signals to work but don't have a horn.

Wouldn't a capacitor be smaller, lighter, and easier? It's not like we need the battery for anything as far as I know.

I don't think a cap would work with a HID headlight. Don't know if you have HID or have plans to get one, just passing that info along.

You're right...caps and HID headlights are a bad mix. If you read through the XR650R Electrical thread you'll see why so many guys are running small batteries. Even those without HID lights.

I am looking to mount a battery because of the dimming you get with the lights at idle. Even with high output stators, they dont put out a lot of power at idle RPMs.

+1

What exactly is the need for a battery? Fix the stator and it'll do everything you need while riding... Do you all have electric starts mounted?
Not trolling, just curious as to why all the batteries :)

to 12v dc to charge battery ...lights work from there ....so hid ...led's ...12v charge to run gps..12v pwr outlet to charge phone other 12v items ...thermo fan ...heated grips...all this avaliable whilst bike is not running

ppl say if ya want all that buy a updated bike ..... i love my xrr's ...

Could you explain a bit for the wiring, like the fuse setup and the black switches(?) at the top
