Well after reading what cornelieaz had to say about batteries I went and bought a generic DRZ battery and a battery tender for about half of what that Yuasa was going to cost.
I had Friday off so I did this, thanks guys for the pics and all of the ideas.

The good thing about those little uni vent/filter thingy's is that they help to keep water out of the airbox. :thumbsup:

When you go through a deep water crossing, and the water is splashing around the airbox, you need something more then an open screen which will allow unrestricted access for the water to enter the airbox. :p

Revisions, Kenzo said,
"...and i not sure about locating all of those components around the shock/spring assembly ether"
So I fixed that. And I did not like the zip ties on the fuse box so I bought some 3/4 inch wire clips and mounted the fuse box with those!

The stock battery just died on my piggy. So I figured, why not do the battery relocation like some of the guys on this site have done?

Picked up a DRZ spec battery made by Bikemaster. One problem though....The battery terminals on the DRZ batt are much smaller than the stocker and the larger battery cables won't fit.

What have you guys done? Modify the stock cables? Buy new new ones or DRZ cables (hate to ask what OEM cables cost from Suzuki)?

Any input is greatly appreciated!

My DRZ battery was a different brand than yours but it bolted right up, I don't remember the brand name right now but it was made in Taiwan.

  • rdsrf

Posted November 20, 2008 - 07:51 PM


So I take it the terminals were about the same size as the stock battery? Can't tell for sure from the pics, but they look about the same to me.

What's a good source for drz batteries?

A did a quick ebay search and found these:

http://cgi.ebay.com/...p4506.m20.l1116

http://cgi.ebay.com/...p4506.m20.l1116

http://cgi.ebay.com/...p4506.m20.l1116

Any recommendations on battery make, model, source?

Thanks.

I just copied all the other guys and added stuff that looked necessary for my application. The 06 I did this to only has 700 miles on it, so that maybe makes it look a little cleaner.
