optima battery

I just replaced my junky old battery with an optima red top. The battery holder isn't quite wide enough for the battery. Is there any way to secure your battery short of a bungee? The holder works all right to hold it down just can't tighten it down all the way, so the battery is a tad loose, not enough to rattle or bounce though. Is it even worth messing with the thing since it doesn't rattle or bounce? Thanks.

Haven't used a top doors or windshield in uh,.....hmm.... since midwinter? That sounds right.

Although that is a sealed battery I would stop it from bouncing around. I have the same battery in my YJ and it went right in with no problems. You can bye a new holder for the battery or bye shorter J clamps to hold it down. Try marine supply stores. They usually have heavy duty battery trays or clamps that will work with your setup. Hope that helps ya

Thanks, I'll try that. By the way, I got the new battery and a new flywheel kit installed, and now it runs like a beast! Now, if I could just get some newpiston rings in there......
