Re: ODYSSEY connections

Thanks.

Any chance of measuring each side of the " L " which I presume are the same.

Also the width please.

Re: ODYSSEY connections

Remember our EzMount buddy has a set of adapters that gives you more than one tap point for accesories on his site.. Perhaps he has some left before he retires ..:<) I dont have them, but they sure looks like just the thing ! http://www.ezymount.com/kits/odyssey_adapter.htm

Re: ODYSSEY connections

Thanks Jim/Bill. What I meant was that both adaptors are the same.

Converting to metric, I make that 30mm and 11mm.

I canīt bend the negative flat as it would get in the way of the Ohlins shock adjuster.

Re: ODYSSEY connections

When I ordered my Odyssey Battery last Spring, I order the adapter kit (on the internet) and the next day, they called me and wanted to know if I was aware that the battery came with a set of them. I was surprised by that, and the great service. They took them off the order and the bill and shipped it a hour later.

I know where my next battery is coming from now.
