Yesterday I added a few more, finishing touches to my Shorai, battery relocation. I temporarily added a piece of Romex wire to serve as a battery "strap." I will figure out a more elegant solution later. I also added a small piece of "Shorai foam" to protect the bottom of the battery from the air box mount on the frame. In addition, I plan to trim/file this metal tab so it will not nick the battery box.

I also plan to add a 5mm sheet of "Shorai foam" to the top of the air box. This foam will reduce abrasion, absorb shock, and further secure the Shorai battery to the top of the air box.
