This is where I ended up putting my tools and papers etc.
The battery is close to the same CCA as stock. Seems to do fine.
I did have to drill two small holes in the existing battery box bottom.

This is what I have in there right now. Had a few other tools but I you know how tools walk off.
I made the pouch, It's pretty crude but serves the purpose.
I don't ride without some tools and I never could find anywhere else that was not in the way or rubbing some paint off.

I'm dense. Bare with me. The battery is shorter than stock and the pouch fits on top of it in the available space?

Right. The batter is about 1/2 the height of the stock and that's where the space come from.
I guess I could have done a worse job with the pics if really tried. Sorry,, the site has changed since I posted any pics, a long time ago, and I was not really paying attention.

This pic shows it a little better, You can see there is a lot of space on top of the bat. Also you can see the hold down on the top of the bat.

Looks cool-
Any extra space should be utilized, incorporated and taken advantage of.
On my FXR, we cut and redid my rear fender so found more space for a second battery In front of the rear tire.
I don’t need that set up now so use the spare old battery box for tools, etc, as mentioned.
Also, mine has a FL Type oil tank below the trans, done a couple years ago, so that’s why you don’t see the oil tank up there.
