Well, the way i did it was to cut out the plastic tray and weld up a metal tray to accomidate the 8 batts, its a tight squeeze, 6-8v would be easier. Now that the 8-6v is available from the factory, you could accomplish this with readily available oem parts. I will try to look into what oem parts would be required.

Its the whole floorboard assy. Part number (Jc1-f7411-11) available for less than $150, but cart would have to be completely disassembled to install it. You would have to get battery rods and hold downs, and cables too. Www.yamahagolfcar.com has full parts list, then punch part numbers into browser search bar to find prices.

Higher AH capacity, more run time, less depletion per use = longer battery life. Heres an example, If you are depleting the batteries to 40% every time you golf, your batteries would not last as many years as they would if you are only depleting them to 65% every time you golf. I also feel that the 8s and 6s are just more robust than the 12s. If you are considering this swap, go all-in on the 8-6volt setup.
