It was a bit of a squeeze and for a moment I thought I’d blown $150 on a battery I’d have to cart around in my luggage! But with a small mod to the battery compartment with a hacksaw, I’ve managed to fit 2x Lithium polymer batteries in.
One to use plus a spare. Both pack more punch than the lead acid standard battery, and the combined weight is still less then half what the standard battery weighs. Result!
I also fitted a toggle switch to the wires I disconnected from the side stand switch. When I park in a dodgy area now I can ensure the bike won’t pull away if someone hot wires it. I’m not sure how it will stand up to the vibration long term, but if it doesn’t then I’ll just twist the wires together again.
