Thanks, yes the battery is in the back. Replacement will take some time. Carb is a Mikuni flat slide (non pumper). Works great, I do need to get a spare pod filter. Any recommendations?

Not an ELL but my ARE had a battery added for estarting. I ride only offroad and did not like the thought of a pod style filter.

CRF450X battery turns over the hi-com,p HRC engine easy and has been doing so for at least a year with no sign of giving up.

I like your battery positioning rmhrc630. I've just finished breaking my 650l down ready for powder coating and relocating the battery is one of my first jobs. I would prefer to keep my air box and snorkel as I ride mainly in Wales which has plenty of streams to cross and the thought of dropping the bike in water with just a pod air filter on the carb scares me. I will have to see if I can fit everything on top of the air box or around it. If this isn't possible I guess I could always fit stabilisers to the bike to keep it upright.

i ran a piece of hose from the vent up to the rear tank mount with a K&N crankcase vent filter.

here is the filter type...
