Where do most folk hide the wiring loom on their racers? I'm thinking of putting mine under the seat, is this a good idea for heat dispersal and muck getting thrown up from the rear wheel.

Yep, battery and bits under the seat hump, get a plate welded between the seat support outriggers and it should all stay dry and cosy.

You will probably need to down-size the battery and it does make sense to keep the front plastic section of the rear mudguard or fit a hugger as a splash protector, particularly if you are running bellmouth or open carbs, but it's your call.

Odyssey do really small motorcycle batteries if you're tight for space, they're a bit pricey (£90 ish I think) but are sealed so you can lay them in any orientation you like if you need to hide it away

I'll look into what battery I am going to fit once I get the seat unit sorted out, not decided if I'm buying or going to try my hand at making my own? I'll have to look at the castings of making one against buying one of the dreaded eBay
