I just finished modifying my 85 750's battery box to clear an r1 shock.

I just finished modding my 85 750's battery box to clear an r1 shock. Does anyone want a drawing of the mods you need to do before I bolt the box in place?. I also got the biggest battery that i could that would fit in the reduced space available.

did the same to mine, all I did was make a cutout at the bottom of the tray and add some wooden spacers to raise the battery up to clear the top of the shock. I had to add some spacers to the back of the gas tank to clear the raised battery. It still all looks factory and nobody would ever know

The advantage is that you can replace the shitacular stock shock with something much better for about 100 CAD.
