Noob question of the day: How to take battery out

I am planning on taking out the battery on my 07 r6s once my battery tender comes in the mail. For now I have done the following:

1) Took seat off
2) Took rubber strap off
3) can take both positive and negative screw off.


Is this all that needs to be done? Because it doesn't look like the battery has room to come out after that??

Thanks in advance!

Can't remember for sure, but I think you need to take the four screws out of that metal arch dealy over top of the battery.

If you don't, it sure makes it a lot easier.

Take off the positive and negative cables. The battery is a tight fit so it will be hard to pull out. Where the battery posts are start to pull up on the battery and then you can pull it out.

Yep, Ryan is right. You can loosen those four screws that attaches to the gas tank assembly or whatever, flip it up, and the battery will come out easily.

Since this is a noob question, I just want to make sure and add in that you should always remove the cable to the negative terminal first, and install it last.

No chance of shorting the anything out.

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

Yup. With the negative connected, the entire chassis is in the loop and attaching the positive closes the loop. You will see sparks that way as it makes contact and if you are tightening the positive terminal and accidentally touch the frame at the same time you get a nice fat short circuit path. With the negative terminal disconnected the entire chassis is isolated, so it doesn't matter if the positive is shorted to it.
