I also forgot how much fun it is to try and bump start a bike on flat, wet pavement- in the rain I really need to get my kickstart back on this bike

FWIW, I'll probably give the antigravity battery a shot if this one can't be brought back to life.

Unlike most other lithium batteries, the Antigravity batteries are also available in OEM size, as well as the small format. If you want to relocate the battery under the saddle, I recommend the 8-Cell battery. However, if you wish to put the lithium battery in the battery box, I recommend the OEM size battery. This battery will fit snugly and securely in the battery box, and won't require the extra work, and extra weight, of shimming the battery with foam.

If you want to run a lot of electrical accessories, I'd stick with a lead-acid, AGM battery.

Yeah man I like the OEM option, for now I have to keep everything where it's supposed to be so I'll probably go that route. I was planning on running a set up for GPS (cause I get lost easy ), and a camera to document my fun, but I found a new case for the Iphone 5 (that comes out in March- the one for the 4 and 4s is already out) that is water proof, shock resistant and mounts to go pro gear so putting it on my handlebar would be easy. They also have a really cool (free) app that is also on that site that tells you elevation, speed, g-force and it records video I figure I would only use the 12V outlet to charge my phone or pump my tires but no prolonged use.

The site for the case and app is....

Are you going to fab up a fiberglass cover to protect the front of it? I hope so... gotta look sexy, too...
I happen to be making the fiberglass fairings for the Rally Moto kit (vendor link in my sig.)

Costco.com? saddle bags? really, I never thought to look there, in store or through the website? Waterproof? Dimensions, roughly? Thanks in advance

Motion Pro generally makes great quality tools and this socket is no exception, but it is heavy. Not the best choice if you're looking for something to carry on the bike. I have a Craftsman 18mm spark plug socket that fits and is lighter than the MoPro... I think the OEM Honda socket is even lighter.

home depot, lowes and all lawn mower shops.....$4.00

I have both the stock and Motion Pro sockets and much prefer the stock, even at home. The Motion Pro is very well made, but it can't take this on the top, which makes all the difference.
