Chain clearance... when you are in motion the chain curves out from the top of the sprockets due to centrifugal force. With your rear wheel in its highest position (when hitting that deep spoon drain!) run a straight line between the top of the sprockets and leave at least an extra inch. Also the chain does move sideways especially as it gets worn, so allow 3/8" side to side... nothing worse than a clanging chain.
I have seen batteries mounted "UNDER" the swing arm before, pretty well hides them, not sure how exposed to damge they might be there though.
I used to be Vague...................Now I'm not so sure
