    Should the strap around the battery be snug?

    I'm not very mechanically inclined, but I noticed that my battery for my 08 RXP-X has kinda a black cloth strap around it looking like it's suppose to secure it to the hull if the bolts fail. I'm just assuming that's what it is used for! Anyways, I noticed that it's not very snug. I could probably fit my hand between the strap and the battery... is this normal? If it helps, I can take a picture.

    Without actually looking at my battery, my guess is that the strap is a carrying strap. Not used to secure the battery in the ski, just for when you take it out. I'm sure someone here will chime in who can actually look at one.

    That is normal. The strap is to aid in lifting the battery out after you remove the metal/rubber bracket that secures the battery.

    your a man, take that strap off and throw it away, it'll give you another 1 mph for lightening your load,. Surely you can lift it out without the strap when you need to change it in 3 more years. Doesn't apply to Jammer 1, he needs a strap to hold up this thimble cup.
