This idea is not original with me .This is a way to accomplish a remount and not destroy any parts or make restoration to the original impossible.

Lay the quad on it's back.

First remove two screws holding plastic battery box.Lay this aside.Second cut a piece of firm plastic the full width of the main frame and about 1" wide.Third fasten this plastic to two arms of the main frame so that the plastic lies at right angle to two of the tubes and centered on the other two arms. You'll see what I mean when you lay it out.I fastened mine with two pieces of fine wire formed in a U shape and fed in from the bottom and passing through two holes for each arm of the main frame.Pull these wires Tight across the plastic with a couple of twists.Careful here, too many twists and you have to do it all again .Cut twists short. I solder mine so they are there to stay.Short so they don't stick up and interfer with battery mounting.The plastic is now mounted to two intersecting tubes.Four.For this I use double sided carpet tape.Really thin an sticky as h..l.To this tape fasten a piece of Velcro.Which ever piece is up to you.I prefer the hook down and the fuzzy on the battery bottom.

This arrangement is easy to change in the field and easy to hook up if you leave the battery on the quad to charge it.Works well in snow too.Easy to clean.

My thanks to the fellow from Greece who first proposed this idea.
