The stock battery looks a lot like the same battery in my k5 10r. So that bikemaster battery will fit in my k5, right?:shady:

It measures 5.75" tall, 5.25" wide, and 2.5" deep... It was $50 shipped.

Ive got an off topic question. Im hooking up my rear brake light sensor on my vortex sets. I The stock wiring has blue and a brown wire, and I need the hot wire... Anybody know for sure which is "hot"? its an 07

if theres only 2 wires coming out of the switch then you don't have to worry about polarity since its just breaking the line

Im not an electrical engineer so im not following you real well.

Heres my question, please answer yes or no :crackup:...
I have 2 wires on my AFTERMARKET pressure switch and 2 wires on my STOCK brake light switch. Am I correct in assuming that I can connect either AFTERMARKET wire to either STOCK wire? Then connect the remaining AFTERMARKET wire to the positive battery terminal...

If this is correct, what do I do with the extra STOCK wire?? Tape and Tie up??

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

it does not matter which way you wire the switch
just use the stock wiring don't try to rewire anything you just said your no electrical engineer

just connect one wire from the switch to the bike then the other wire to the other wire on the bike


all the switch is doing is breaking a connection not suppling a voltage

Stock OEM Battery- 9 Lbs
Bikemaster- 5 Lbs
So how have you found the battery works for you ? Still turns the motor easily ? And, does it continue to rev out properly ?

I'm very interested in this easy weigh reduction mod, provided of course it works :)

Cheers,
Brian

True, except it also supplies the juice for the ECU, ignition and fuel pump. Interesteingly, while the kit manual includes a lower-rated generator, it also specifies retaining the original 10AH battery, even with a 'stripped' loom not runnig all the road crap. That makes me wonder if the OEM generator is barely enough to top up the battery under heavy load.

Let me add that as electrical engineers go, I'm an excellent bank manager, so this is all pure supposition (hence the question) :mrgreen:

Cheers,
Brian

:+1: im not taking the chance of the bike not having enough juice to start to save 4 pounds, id rather just put my fatass on a diet, o wait i am 16 pounds down already :thefinger
I hear you, but why not do both ? :)

I've had a look in our loca Yuasa catalogue, and they list an 8.6AH battery that weighs 3.2 kg (7 pounds) ; may give that a try, but I'll do some research and see if I can find something a little smaller first. I'm going to pull the starter motor out eventually, so all it needs is enough to run the engine systems properly.

Cheers,
Brian
