Battery

I have ordered a Trail Tech NIMH battery , and bag.I am not 100% sure where i will mount it , but i am thinking on top of the rear gaurd/fender might work.I will be able to get rid of my big battery now , and the starter motor.When i get it i will post pics , and let you guys know what i think off it. I am excited

peter650, you're like the "mad scientist" of KLR mods. You do things I've never seen anybody else do or even mention. I admire that.

Thanks Planalp to be 100% honest with you i don't know if this will work, or not.It's a deep cycle battery, about the same size as a pack of smokes.If it works,i will be able to loose the main battery.While i am at it i will remove the starter motor.Should save me 15 to 20 lbs i think.Cheers Peter.

an a123 Li ion battery would work if this one doesn't... Shorai sell them motorcycle battery shaped now too.

I wouldn't be too sure that the KLR Regulator holds the charging voltage steady enough to charge this type of battery though....

Hi Salty i don't know if it's going to work, or not. I will give it a try, and see. If i have no luck with it, i will give the battery in your post a try. Thanks for that. Cheers Peter
