While my bike was at the shop undergoing other "improvements," I had this done. Thank you LeeC for the step by step instructions and advice! One deviation was done from the installation instructions: step #6 which involves wrapping the old battery connections to the new quick connect wiring. My shop tech scavenged the wiring from the old battery connections, resoldered it to the new quick connect wiring and then wrapped it. His concern was that the old battery connections were rather sharp and bulky and could cut possibly through any wrapping and cause a short or worse a spark/ fire. Just passing this on.

Regulator rectifier under the seat now and now to decide what to do with those battery case nubs. The quick connect makes it easy to remove the battery and perhaps its just me but I found access to the old battery to attach my Battery Tender in the battery case a real pain in the a**.

Hello Sport Classic Riders-

We're happy to now offer a battery tray based on the 3D model that Lee worked up.

Basically it's exactly what he made but in black ABS.

We have it on the site now and riders who bought a HICAP II underseat relocation kit will receive an email from us this weekend.

Cost is $50 for the custom kit with the battery retainer and SS Bolts.

Photos below show what you receive and how nicely the whole relocation kit and battery tray work together.

On a performance note, *any* efforts to minimize vibration reaching a battery is worthwhile.

No battery does well with excess vibration.





Email us direct or post here if you need/want more info.

Thanks,

M./

Say SC Riders,

Just want to give those who are contemplating the QR version of the kit, the heads-up that the price has to go up about $20 to compensate for the price increase on the QR coupling parts.

There is only 1 maker of a secure, polarized high current coupling connector and so we have to go with the flow when they raise prices.

If you buy now you can get the kit for the same price as when we launched it in back in 2012.

We will hold the price for another 2 weeks but after that it will rise, now's the time to make your move.

Hope This Helps.

M./
