G650GS Battery Relocation

For future reference.

The battery is a considerable weight mounted high on the machine contributing to the top heavy feel. There are two solutions to this. The first is to fit one of the new Lithium LifePO4 batteries which reduce the weight of the battery from 4 kgs to 0.8 kg and in some cases less, They are also considerably smaller leaving additional space for mounting electrical relays or HID ballasts in the battery box. The second is to relocate the battery to below the seat behind the engine. This step is only possible on the non ABS machines.
