Ok, so I have hard tailed my sporty, taken the entire loom out and will be minimising what’s required...

Now I have a clean bike, a gel battery (small) going in sideways under the oil tank... but now... where to mount the entire ignition, and control stuff, any ideas appreciated, I just don’t want to use a Tupperware box or something stupid...

It can’t go in or around the oil tank, headlight or petrol tank... scratch for the purpose of a clean look.

Thanks guys?

cheers scratch

How about building the battery box so that it houses the battery, your little black box and ignition switch, Just an Idea bud. scratch

I've got a Spyke ignition module and that fits behind the old points cover. The only other things oputside were the relays and switches. Are you taking the big Harley switches off the bars?

Cheers woody, it was what we were thinking, but just in case there was something I’d overlooked!

Jon, yep running STD to get cert, but once that sorted I’m going to run micro buttons on bars... just horn, hi/lo and winkers... 2 each side, have a start button for on end of starter.

Looking like I might use the Odyssey PC310 battery... any one know anything about these, except that they are red!
Cranking ability is what’s important... is it?
Any other gel batts that are small used on sportys to get some space..?

What a Face

Don't really know but I'd expect you'd need to get pretty much the same amps as a standard Sporty battery. Any advice on quad cam bastards?
