This space was originally left open for a reason; possibly for cooling air circulation, possibly because it was below the carbs (don't want overflow gas on electrical components, etc.)
maybe if you could get a picture of what you're talking about? if you think the engine might have cooling issues then the battery is probably gonna have heat issues.

not sure how different the 550's are from the 750's but if it's anything like my 750, i wouldn't do it that way.
