The battery is dead in my 81 R80 G/S. I was thinking about getting a battery that would fit both my '82 RS and the G/S but I don't think that is possible.
The RS battery box is much larger.
I tried the RS battery in the GS yesterday and not only the width is much too large but installing it required removing the top of the rear shock and sliding it out of the way. Once in, the battery rubs on the shock so the length is too much also. I have the small battery holder with rubber isolators on the bottom and some funky bungie hold down straps the PO left in there.
I've seen several posts about fitting a Odyssey PC680 but it seems that it might be too wide. The vendor site shows:
Length 7.27 in.
Width 3.11 in.
Height 6.67 in.
- Anyone running a PC680 in their GS?
- Anyone running a PC680 in their RS?
- What are the standard R80 dimensions?
Looking for ideas.
