Dear Craig,What exact lithium battery have you been using?
do you have photo of this installation?
The battery I use is a Shorai case size #1. It fits standing on its end in a dummy Exide battery case so one connector is at the top and one at the bottom. Not a problem, you just need to make the length of your leads to suit. It comes in 4 cranking amp capacities. I initially used one of the smaller capacity case size # 1 batteries which was fine. I later replaced it with one of the 270 CCA type to have a bit of extra capacity as an insurance when I removed the kick start. The bike is in bits at the moment and I have sorted out the gear cover to show where it needed machining. It is an early cover and the machining was minimal and could easily have been done by hand with a small grinder of the Dremel type. Some covers may need more material removing.
