    I removed your duplicate thread, as this posting is in the better section for your question. Use the search function here, or use google with cx500 cafe battery and you should find plenty of options folks have done.

    Hey mate, most people relocate them under the frame next to the engine where the H-box/Balance pipe is.

    Making up a battery box isn't too difficult but can be a bit time consuming depending on your tools/skills but it's completely doable with hand tools.

    Here is mine that I made up and where it's mounted
