Can Someone please post some pictures of how they mounted their battery boxes or battery platforms behind the gearboxes of their tritons ? I am mounting a t150 triple lump in a featherbed and there is plenty of room between the gearbox and front of the swinging arm for the battery.

bon, don't have any pics yet because it's not done, but I'm planning on putting mine under the rear compartment of the seat along with electronics on my narrow bed and T110 special. Crafting sorta a hinged compartment for the whole shooting match.

My solution was a bit like the previous. I had fitted an oil filter behind the gearbox where they normally hang the battery and I have a central oil tank so the best spot I could find was under the seat behind the oil tank. I use a 7ah Gel so its smaller in size than the lead acid. I had to modify my gf seat pan with a cut in for clearance. Its all tight, very utilitarian and took 3 attempts but it fits.... I'll post a pic tomorrow.
One problem I have is the God awful bright yellow Motobatt. I've seen a couple of customs where the battery is fully visible and they're so gawdy your eye zooms straight in on it.
I tried real hard to cover mine as much as possible !

I set mine in place between the tranny/engine mount plates, surrounded by foam padding. It's also a small modern AGM type, so no worries.

Thanks for the replies, just planning to get all the bracket welding done and don't want to discover too late i need to weld on brackets for a battery tray etc.
I don't want to use one thats integral with the oil tank as i am using a trident engine and need all the room in that area i can get.
