Are you refering to the rear plastics for the battery box? I'm not using the rear plastics anymore and will need to fab up a box to mount it either under my seat or up front. Just trying to find a battery small enough to mount in the inside of the frame behind the bumper if that makes sense

Here's my battery box/electronics mounts for now, though the battery part shown is for an Odyssey battery, there's a box for a standard battery on there now:





and a side pic, you can barely see it really from the side, even without plastics. From the rear it hangs down a bit, don't have a pic of that at the moment

Eventually I'd like to move my battery up front. Conserving weight in the rear and moving it forward should help launching when dragging. I don't ride through much crap, so the lower position (where Willy's talking about seems to be the best place) shouldn't be an issue.

to put more weight in the front
do people do it on there drag bikes also?
Why YES they do..........

"MY THERORY" my weight near to over the rear wheels is enough. The quad always wants to head skyward, so moving the weight forward was a plus on my drag quad.........

What about mounting it down low under the oi tank, tucked back twards the engine. Get an odessey battery so you can lay it on it's side, horizontal.

Well I thank you all for the info now I just need to figure out where to mount it and i'll be ordering that soon. Another thing I wanted to find out is the better air filter set up. I won't have the air box anymore so any ideas?
