    Low Profile Batteries

    Does anyone know if there are any types of batteries that are low profile that will work with the TW? I’m going naked with my bike and I want to keep the triangle as clear as possible. But the bulky standard battery is hindering that. Any suggestions would help! Thank you

    There are some lithium motorcycle packs that are small. Ballistic make some.

    I bought 10 Lifepo4 26650 cells they are rated 5.5 amps each 3.2 v nonminal. I have been messing with making a home made 8 cell which would be 11 amps. But 4 cells would do it and be very small. These cells are [email protected] the size of a C-D cell.

    Yes, build your own flat battery pack to fit in available space if you have any soldiering equipment and supplies. Youtube can be your friend.

    No soldiering desires? DIY kits can help

    You can put eight of these together 4s2p. 6. 6 amp battery. Or use 4 in series for 3.3 amp battery. These Lifepo4 are safer than the cells Fred showed.

    I picked up a Shorai Lithium Ion battery for my custom Grom build and it's Tiny and extremely Light compared to the stock battery, you could definitely hide it under the seat and it says it can be mounted upright or laying flat.
