Re: Eurolights-battery post

I found that the windshield fluid bottle fit fine.  I moved the battery post
back to the front edge of the airfilter box.  I used two screws to secure it
after removing a small ridge in the front of the airfilter box.  Looks
stock, everything is in the right place, and it took five minutes.
