well, Anti Gravity 16 cell small case fits nicely, turn it ccw sideways, so terminals are on left side. perfect!
upper minus, down plus-terminal.
grey filling stuff is from package;
plus-cable is partly in a white plastic tube, so it won't wear off as 'grinding' against chassis (original cable did, and old battery died...);
minus-cable makes a loop down to reduce excess length.
Second fan amongst a plethora of other things while I had the bike apart for it's first lube job,
Put a new sticker on it.
Cool thanks. still have the Anti Gravity and it is the 16 cell small case.
I'm going to give it a try.

I drove it to the dealer for maintenance.
Driving a 1190 Adventure today ...
In the middle of a valve check.
Rear cylinder: perfect. Spot on perfect.
Front cylinder: one in middle of tolerance, 2 at limit of tolerance, one barely over tolerance (exhaust .33)
Oh, and apparently someone put RTV on the gasket so when I pulled the front cover off I had to pull RTV out of the cam chain. If this isn't Factory KTM I'm about to go shoot the mechanic at the KTM dealer that did my last valve check.
So now I've pulled the radiator and blown about a pint of fluid all over the garage, even after draining through the water pump drain. The front header is thrown somewhere in the garage also. It's a good thing I was planning on doing a basic WP replacement too.
Maybe it means; I am slow ...
It means Infidel. But you can believe the slow part. But to be honest I can keep up with most in the dirt and I can hold my own on pavement.
Installed some new ebay mirrors. They look real nice for 23$. However, they vibrate quite a bit on the highway making it difficult to see if the car following me is a cop..
Aw, just toss 'em all the bird. You'll find the cop real quick!
Those mirrors are very similar to the late model KLX250 mirrors. I've been thinking of making that swap. Either that, or the SMT mirrors.
Here are the KLX mirrors...
