I'm interested as well. so a new batter is needed in order to use this tray correct? Also how hard would installation be?

Yep a lithium battery is required so it can be laid on it's side and they are much much lighter. You can get an idea of how much work if you search the " Getting Nude Thread "on this forum.

Fity,

Looks great. May be getting with you to purchase one depending on how the Insurance claim works out.

Ok guy's just a quick update. Picked up the prototype today and checked it with my bike, there are a few small issues which I expected, so it's back to the fabricator on Monday to sort em out. I'm hoping by the end of the week we should be ready to start making a few.
Here's a couple of pics. of the prortype

Looks like this might have a bit of a time fitting with the EFI considerations (ECU thickness and so on.) I've already got that very same battery, and it fits in the ARK setups I've seen thus far that are more readily designed for non-EFI, but this looks just a TOUCH shallow?

Dunno if you have a decent option for testing the EFI situation locally, but that might be good to know. =) Just my two cents. Or more, if I can end up buying one from you all.

Amazing!

Question, what did you use as a rear brake fluid reservoir? I see it kind of free standing on your bike.

EFI won't be a problem will it? Thanks
