IS there space around the battery, under the seat, behind a side cover, inside the headlamp shell?

It's all good, it fits... I just had to remove my pretty bracket and strap it directly to the horn relay... it's solid.  The box|bracket|relay sandwich was just too much...

So I added oil to the primary/trans/oil bag. I started working the kicker to pump oil into the crank case... and noticed a drip on the lift under the motor and thought "Oh shit..." so I got to inspecting and found this...


Turns out I'm supposed to have a blanking bolt and copper washer in there to plug that oil way. I did not have the original on hand. But had a bunch of 5/16-18 bolts which is what that oil way required. So I grabbed one and trimmed it to length with the lathe and installed it...


Very glad that drip was that easy to correct... crossed fingers for the rest of it.
