Re: Noob question of the day: How to take battery out

Sometimes dirt may build up on the sides of the battery and it gets stuck. I stuck screwdriver down the side of the battery just to loosen it.

It's probably not what you are thinking; the four bolts attach to the subframe, basically hold tank bracket down....Where your tank flips up, that part...

Re: Noob question of the day: How to take battery out

Just curious, do you HAVE to remove the battery to put it on a trickle charger? Or can you leave it in the bike? It would save a bit of a huge PITA if you can just leave it in and connect the charger. Not trying to hijack the thread from OP, but I was just curious, not bi-curious, just normal curious

You could leave it in, they even (at least the Battery tender does) have posts that you could install and run it down the rear so you could hook up when ever you need to.

Absolutely not.

Just connect the battery tender to the correct polarity using the ring terminal pigtail, run the cable back out under the seat and connect the plug.

Does this info make your life easier, OP? Or was there another reason you are removing your battery?

What you definitely don't want to do, is absent mindedly leave another ground cable disconnected when hooking up your battery tender. Then take your bike to the race track and wonder why it wont start. Ask me how I know.

Okay, that's what I thought, would probably save OP a lot of time and effort.
