Today I went shopping for velcro. I bought some "Industrial Strength" Velcro at the fabric shop, and some Scotch Heavy Duty Fasteners at Staples. However, when I returned home to remove my battery, and apply the new velcro, I discovered the battery was very firmly attached. The 3" x 2" piece of Scotch Multi-Purpose Fastener I applied to the battery is doing an excellent job, so I am leaving it alone! I am confident the battery will not shift position using the present "velcro."

Someone on another forum requested photographs showing the location of my repositioned starter relay, and fuse box; therefore, I will post those photographs here, as well.

Here's a top view from the left side of the bike, showing how the right side plastic covers the starter relay.

Finally, here's a view from the right side of the bike, showing how the saddle overlaps the right side cover, protecting the starter relay from moisture.

To better protect the fuse box from moisture, I have decided to extend the wiring, and move the fuse box under the saddle. Other than this final modification, I consider my Shorai battery relocation to be complete.
