Welcome aboard!

You will find all your questions answered in The SkyTeam 'Ace' Resource: http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=43357.0

You will also find answers to a lot of questions you may never need to ask!

It will take some time to go through but I think it will help you get up to speed (in more ways than one).

In what part of this fair planet do you live?

As crazy said the resource is a great read loads of info tips and general good stuff.

here is how i dealt with it, used the original battery box turned on its side and made up some longer leads to connect the battery under the hump.

new earth wire connected.

new positive lead to fuse.

top view using a smaller battery as i am running kick start only.

all finished with the leather straps holding the battery securely.

result no airbox and a little more racer looking.

Hi Nedskiee,

If you didn't want to move the battery I installed the ooracing kit by cutting the air box up to retain the side with the battery mounting points. Leaves plenty of air space around the filter and the plastic feels durable enough so I do think it's going to give in any time soon. You can't see any of it behind the side panels and it cleans up ok. I would be able to get some pictures for you this weekend when I'm back home.
