    I am also thinking the same thing. If the ballistic Evo2 8 cell or 12 cell can fit in my original air box then that is where I will put it, possibly editing the inside of the casting and making or finding an air filter to keep the original air intakes but still house the small battery.

    I want to keep my centre stand and have a thin, flat seat so no room for it there either.

    Keen to find a good compromise between form and function on a bike I will ride everyday

    Will a ballistic 8 cell work or do you need the 12 cell? This is for a 77 r75/7 that will be running minimal guages/etc....

    Tire clearance with the suspension fully compressed.

    You can leave the battery location stock, use ordinary and far less costly batteries, and then wrap the thing instead of leaving it in a skeleton frame. You need cooling but a full box with interesting hole patterns could look good and it's strait up to fabricate. in fact, you could do some very interesting hole patterns.

    Except it doesn't clear the tire. Too bad the bend in the Z is almost exactly where it will do the most harm. These threads would be a lot more interesting to me if more of the stuff had at least a chance of working!
