Seems like Jon-Lars has a hidden beef with bmweuro..

I don't personally like the look of the battery in the airbox area, but there are plenty more statically and dynamically loaded members of the bike that, if structural failure happened, would lead to a much more catastrophic result than a battery slightly cocking over... and BMW designed them!

Not really.

I am not making a personal attack.

I am criticizing the part, which, by the way, was invited by the poster.

How about being the first poster to explain why the extra threads are helpful and necessary?

FWIW...I agree. Ideas, parts, modifications...they are always open to critique here. That's how we learn and get better. We just need to always keep it technical and not personal.

I've changed plans on my build a few times by lurking and reading about problems that I hadn't considered.

For one...I won't be running intake pods.

I don't feel attacked at all. The extra threads are there because that is a part we use for another product and it works fine. The battery is recessed in the tray almost a 1/4 and inch and isn't going anywhere.

I don't want to derail this thread but I would like to say that all of the products I offer are because folks like yourselves have asked over time does anyone make.........The great thing about ADV is the diversity. As much as I have helped with various tech questions over the years I too have learned a lot. Lets keep picking, poking and educating.
