Long term plans. We'll see how it goes, but it's nice to have a goal/dream.

And we've found a company that will produce a prototype for us.

One wound with 16 gauge wire and one wound with 18 gauge wire should be arriving in our shop toward the end of August.

Awesome! Just FYI we switched to a Motobatt AGM battery because the speedcell was draining too fast at idle with the 40 watt headlight.  Why do you think this was happening? I thought lithium held a charge longer?

At rest. ;)

In use, it discharges very quickly, which is why such a small battery can turn over a large engine.

Overcoming the limitations of LI-ION on the Honda twins is part of the motivation for this project.

OK... got the first sample prototypes in my hands. We have one wound with 18 gauge and the other wound in 16 gauge.

The test fit didn't go so well. I completely spaced the fact that the added copper and the three tabs on the side that are no longer used are trying to occupy the same space at the same time. Going with this setup might require milling (or otherwise removing) the now-unneeded tabs.

Hmmm....

Can you mark up what you would like to mill?
