GPRXP Vigilante Battery support
This is an open thread showing some of the ideas for battery placement. Some pics of the different ideas so far.
-Stock GPRXP with internal intercooler. Square tubing, with a plate mount, and a brace, on the starboard rear side behind air intake with the stock rxp battery mount on top of it.
The next mounting point, is on top of the pump tunnel. You can make the bracket using 1" L-bracket. Each side is around 7" long, with attachment "feet" on the rear transom plate bolts. This design is best for mounting an external intercooler, yet keeping the battery in a service-friendly location.
The next version, is used on the Spitfire, and maximizes the weight toward the rear of the ski, while allowing for a waterbox, intercooler, or any other accesory. It locates the battery in the most rear area of the ski, behind where the stock waterbox would be.
Lastly, Jerry has the battery mounted in front of the engine, behind the gas tank, using the old tank mounts, and the front engine mount. No pic.

As noted in the other thread, here is a location for the Stickem turbo. The assembly is too long to make the corner over to the stock location, as well as needed a little support off the rear pipe. Here is some mockups and first attempt. Note that the "feet" are providing the attachment points for the trim tabs.
You can NOT use the stock GPR exhaust, which is a shame, since it is BY FAR, the best sounding and least restrictive options.

for those of you who have mounted the battery in the back, behind the waterbox, did you run some type of wiring back there in case you need to charge it or something?
I'm thinking about moving my battery back there again, I all ready have a bracket for it, where the trim tabs mount. I moved it out of there because it was a pain to get to if I needed to do anything to it.
I all ready have a fuse block that supplies power to all the accessories, could I just hook the charger up to that and call it a day?

One thing I'll never do again, is use the smaller 16 series battery. That was just absolutely retarded.
