720 modifacations, moving the Battery

Recommended Posts

Here is one that went through my mind this evening. What about building a cross box between the fenders behind the seat and make the crossbox look like a fuel tank on the XT 190's, which is what the 720 looks like anyhow. You could use a narrow battery and run long cables from the back up to the front. Then top it off with a AC decal on the back of it. I think it can be done, clear the 3 point and look good too. Hey Guys , does the idea have merit??

sure, if a single battery of the proper size doesn't have the amp/hour rating check out using two or three batteries of a different form factor. After the battery move will you rotate the tank 90 degrees? Steve

Should work Sam. I assume you are talking about the larger long, narrow batteries like many farm tractors used. I believe they are group 3EH or 4EH, approximately 4" wide, 20" long and 8" high? With those, should be no problem with any amperage lost to the longer cables. Pat

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
