Has anyone relocated the battery to the under seat area? Is there a flatter profile battery that would fit there? Comments please. I was bleeding the brakes yesterday and started to free up a lot of the screws in that area. The FJR rear brake master cylinder and battery are located in tricky to work with locations.

I've seen photos where it was done - but only on Gen I FJRs where you didn't need to move the ECU location. Also perhaps non-abs Gen I as that plumbing could get in the way. I *think* some police FJRs had dual battery systems with one under the seat. To change location would be a major ass-pain and not worth the effort IMHO. As for bleeding the rear brake, easy-peasy. What the heck were you removing to do it?
