The second approach lowers the CG a bit but would need a shield to protect the battery case from the radiant heat of the headers.I haven’t posted in a while. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season.
I took a page from the BoC and made a battery mock-up. I thought of using the Odyssey 1100, but they are currently hard to find and this Napa battery worked fine when I had the XK6 on the run stand and isn’t that much bigger. (9x7x4.75)
I thought I’d check my logic with you all, because when something seems too easy, I start to wonder what I’m missing. Any reason why I couldn’t or shouldn’t mount the battery in the location pictured? With a heavy duty clamping bracket, of course. It would allow battery size flexibility and solves a few other problems as well.

There’s also this option, which would require a very customized battery tray, but would look a little cleaner…
