That's why I don't run a kickstand
Just messin, I'm actually headed up to the sign shop today to CNC cut some .063" aluminum panels for the sides. They also have coroplast there too, so maybe i'll make a buffer of coro between the batt's and aluminum. No worries dogman, I am taking care of it, your sighs will soon be that of relief. I also NEVER store the batt's on the bike. As soon as it comes into the house, the batt. gets detached and put into a steel box.
On another battery related note, I picked up a Hyperion 1420i charger yesterday, so I can charge 14 cells at once saftely. Tried it out using a fully charged marine battery and it works great! I need to find a good 24v 20 amp power supply now so I can charge my bank fast. Now to parallel the balance taps.
