Erling,

I know I have said it before, but your work is just awesome! I dream of carbon fiber, lol. I am just happy to get new parts from Light Speed on my bike. If for any reason you ever wanted to see what a full carbon SM looks like, you are more than welcome to use my bike as the test mule, LOL.

Have a great christmas, and please update the pics in your garage!

harleys, duck billed platapus', pt cruisers, dogie doo, chicks from NJ... these things are ugly. A carbon fiber battery holder thing... That, my man, is a thing of beauty.

I wish I had half your skills.

Just needs a little dressing up/polishing.

As always, good stuff, Erling. Merry X-Mas to you and yours :mad:

Right back at you William.:busted::moon: It actually was fairly shiny, but Isanded the inside so it had no sharp point that would puncture the new YTZ-10S over time. I couldn`t use the standard SSW superstart bracket, since the battery positive would touch the CF side cover. I found that out the hard way one year ago, when the old battery melted a hole in the CF cover....CF being a conductor and all....kind of knew that....but got cought. This brackett gives me 1/4 inch clearence....Had to set bach the tray 1/2 inch deeper into the fender well...But it clears the tire.:eek::p

So how much weight did you save?

It`s perhaps only a few ounces lighter....But the stock brackett could not hold the bigger SSW superstart kit battery, so weight was/is not an issue...:busted::moon:

Your gonna hurt Eddies feelings with that nice setup he made for the SSW kit. Being it's Christmas time, I suspect he might forgive you. :busted:

The first thing I did was ask Eddie for permission, since it is his idea. He blessed the setup:banana: :p:mad: My Eddie special motor was having a little trouble cranking when it got cold....cranking the engine...that is..:moon::eek:
