Where's the thread about r/r relocation?

Hey all,

Okay so I searched the site, briefly, and couldn't find a link about the r/r relocation mod some of you have done. Let's just say the new thread from the new KAW rep member got me thinking I might want to do it. It would be a good mod due to the nice, errr I mean blazing hot summers we have around here!?

Thanks for the help

Wow, I didin't remember it being that easy to do!

Doesn't the battery box just pop out after loosening a few bolts or not?

I had to replace my r/r on my cop bike and couldn't get to the bolt heads because of having sasquatch hands, so I drilled out the bolts from the top of the battery box. It made it easy to put new ones in and tighten up from the top. So when I relocated my r/r on the 750, I didn't even think twice about it. I just drilled them out. I just couldn't see removing any more than I had to for the job. I know several have taken the battery box loose to do the job, but I say why? You're not going to put anything back there. Save yourself some time and drill em. Use a magnet to pick up the shavings. It's easy.

Yes, four bolts and a connector or two and its movable. A bit more work to remove it but you don't have to. Just tilt it to get to the bottom and the r/r connector.

R/R Relocate

I am also going to relocate the R/R this spring. As long as I was working on the unit, I was planning on pulling the electrical connection and coating it with dielectric grease. I believe I read where some folks recommend that. Is it worth doing?

Definitely worth it. The grease protects the leads from corrosion, and also facilitate electrical contact.While you're in there, you might as well pack the other leads coming off the battery box. It's a good habit to get into. I think I bought a can with an applicator thing for a few dollars at Napa or Antietam Auto. Cheap, but well worth it.
