    Hi,
    Can you give some feedback on the battery? How is turning when hot?

    Thanks

    Also, according to this thread: https://www.benelliforum.com/forum/t...tery-size.html , the max size is smaller. How is your battery fitting?

    O the battery's under the rear hump is that on an RS, mines been very handily placed in front of the drive chain so if the chain breaks or or snaps could easily slice through the battery, which would make a bang, i am thinking of moving the battery anyone done this ?

    If a chain snaps and slices through the battery, that would be the least of your worries.

    Only the LE's have the battery mounted there. All other Tornados have them under the rear seat fairing. You will not be able to mount the battery there on the LE due to the different type of rear sub-frame and I doubt you will find another suitable position to mount it on the LE.

    Best Buy a good DID gold chain and look after it then you haven’t got a worry.

    Can you provide some more info on the cables, are they normal cables from every DIY shop, or purpose made set?

    Thanks

    Define standard, please there are many different versions of cables out there it depends on the specs you want/need
    I use the cables from my supplier for many years now and I'm sure all of my sets still working fine not one bad feedback so far. My cable kit in my Tornado is 10 years old and its working like the first day.

    I'm sure a good DIY shop can provide high quality cables, too so you can do a cable kit yourself it is not a mystery have a look at the max. temp of the cables and you have to crimp the eyelett tubes very well and use pol caps for them thats it.

    Don't use cheap cables because the cables can get really hot so there is a risk that the bike is burning in the end then.
