it should be under the front seat. the battery should be marked and the positive should have a red cover over the connection. if you are getting in there you might want to go ahead and install the wiring for a battery tender so the pig-tail can be routed so it is accessable w/o taking everything apart. the pig tail can be purchased for about $6 at most bike shops. the tender will run you about $35 and should include the tail as well.

here is a link to the service book should you have any questions.

i also have it on pdf file if that dosnt work just shoot me an e-mail addy that can recieve a large file.

MissS:no now!!!

bambam nope you said i have a few hours

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

MissS: I'm a female, allowed to do it

The battery itself will also have a raised + near the positive terminal and a - near the ground terminal. Be careful. Remove the ground cable first when removing the battery. Don't touch any metal on the bike while connecting or disconnecting the positive cable.

How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Make sure when u change your bat. To put the red rubber cap back over the terminal. Mine was lifted by the corner of the battery casing. I had a helmet lock in my trunk that slid down to the bat. When I was doing a standup (ON A PRIVATE RD.) The helmet lock slipped under the rubber cap and grounded the bike. Thus shutting it off and send a malfunction lite, while I was doing the wheelie. All was good just grabbed the clutch. Freak accident I know, but I now know the cap is there for a reason.
