    vent tube

    I replaced the battery in my 03 RXDI with a Yuasa maintenance free. I want to ask you guys who changed it out too what you did with the vent tube since there is no need for it. I zip tied it to part of the wiring so it wouldn't bounce around. thx

    Sounds about right! It won't be a problem.

    Alex,
    I replaced my battery with an Odyssey sealed battery and I Just removed the tube and put a plastic screw cover with a tie wrap around it on the the fiitting on the inside of the hull. Probably overkill as I believe the fitting is a one-way valve, out only. Let's ride soon.
