How do i remove the seat (and charge the battery) on a 1980 650 maxim yamaha

As you know, your battery is located under the seat. You will find a couple bolts holding the seat down - remove them. The seat will come off easily. I dont suppose you still have the owner manual in the little compartment under the battery, do you? That would be very helpful to have. You may find additional particulars at the Yamaha web site (the rider club section). You can expect to find a generic owners and/or shop manual there which may aid you.

Where is the battery located on a 2005 kawasaki concours 1000? and how would i go about charging the battery? or does it have to be taken to the shop? bike has been sitting in the garage for over 6 months,...

I don't know 100% for sure where the battery is but typically on Japanese bikes they're under the seat. You can charge it yourself using a motorcycle battery charger. Sears also sells a charger that's good for cars and motorcycles and will condition a battery that's sulfated. Changing the gas in the tank would be a good thing to do to help prevent the possibilities of fuel related problems rearing up when you show the bike. Other than that, a good going over before you put it on the market is a good idea.

I have a 1998 Honda Valkyrie. I need to charge the battery but cannot get to it. I know the seat has to be removed, but I don't know how to remove it! Can you help?

Look under the seat between the fuel tank and seat area. Or follow the side cover around under the tank where the two side covers would meet.There is a Key Hole like on a car door you need your key to turn the lock and pull up on the front of the seat. The battery is under the seat under a plastic cover held down with a rubber strap.

I want to know to know where I can find the battery on the 2007 kawasaki Z750 and how I can jump start it.

Battery is located under the driver seat. DO NOT JUMP START IT WITH A CAR! Car batteris are too powerfull for motorcycle, it can fry your battery, ECU or somethin else on motorcycle.
Tako it of and recharge it with 10% of power for a 10h for full charge. Than put it back on and drive safetly.

Battery location

remove the two bolts on the sides of the seat (also mounting bolts for the rear # plates)

the battery is laying on its side near the from of the sub frame (seat support) with the terminals facing the front.

IMPORTANT!!! do not ever try and jumpstart this bike!! remove the batt from the bike before charging.

you will blow fuses, relays, and bulbs if you dont follow this.!!!!
possibly even the ECM could fry.

take the time to remove the bat. and i would recommend a "battery tender" to keep her all charged up

feel free to ask me anything else!!!

I Have Honda Shadow 400s. My battery is dead adn I want to replace it but cant locate it. i removed the side covers and its not their. I assume its under the sit but after I remove all screws sit still...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To your concern:
  • Where is the battery and how do I change it?
Under the seat inside the battery box. In some versions, there are 3 Phillips screws that hold the cover. Pls note the location of the +/- battery terminals. Not all batteries have the same location/position of the terminals. If the battery has not been replaced for some time, dipping the battery terminal connector in very hot water would remove corrosion.
  • How do I remove the sit if needed?
If I remember right, just 2 Allen screws (left & right) between the seat and pillion (rear/passenger seat). I have seen version where there is a third screw at the back of the pillion. Once all screws are removed, lift the rear seat slightly and pull back (towards the rear of the bike). The front/driver seat also would require a slight lift and pull back.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
