KTM 450 Install

I've been asked for pictures of Sycl battery installation on KTM 450s and 525s.

The 2.3 Ah works great for normal conditions. It just gets zip tied in. Not the cleanest install, but a customer sent this to me:

Notmybikemodelname and I use the larger 4.6 Ah for the extra power and also for very cold weather starts...

No foam or rubber needed. Just make sure everything is tight.

One other comment about zip ties. They do wear out over time. I replace mine once a year. They just get brittle and could break.

(I've also wound up with a whole bundle of brittle ones I brought out with me for field repairs that were no good.)

Next I will post the Ballistic battery installation in an F650 GS.
