Ana suggested looking under the seat. Not appropriate!

The battery is under the tank, but you don't need to remove the tank, just loosen it off. You need to remove the Right body panel, and the air "tank trim" panels, and loosen off the two oil coolers. They can hang happily enough on the hoses. On the right side under the body panel there is a tank mounting screw that you need to take off. Then the tank can be propped up, but be careful not to put strain on the fuel lines! This will give you access to the battery. I can't remember if you need to take off the air filter box as well.

Try getting a copy of the Haynes manual, it's not expensive and it's very detailed.

How do I hook up a charger to my sportster battery


Most importantly you must connect it correctly to the positive and negative terminal!!

First find where the battery is on your bike you shouldn't need to remove it from the bike - once you have located the battery have a close look at the wires going to it.

RED - positive

BLACK - negative


You must make sure you connect the red "positive" to the positive terminal and visa versa for the negative .


connect the battery charger clamps to the terminals and then turn on the power to the charger after its all connected.

hope this helps

Charge a battery on a 2006 HD Wide Glide


You need to get a proper tool and take the box off, like a phillips screwdriver.

Otherwise, the battery positive cable goes directly to the post on the starter so it you can access it and put the positive charger cable clamp direclty on the starert cable post and the negative charger cable connector on the engine or some other good ground you should be charging your battery.

Can not figure out where the battery is and how to get to it to charge it on a 2002 Suzuki Savage 650


Some bikes have the battery under the seat, or a plastic side panel in front of the rear wheel. If your gas filler is under the seat the battery will be under the mock gas tank close to the neck. I have a v-rod and the battery is packed under the neck. Most newer bikes will also have a charging plug near the battery compartment so you just plug it in to a bike charger. And not have to pull out the battery or use alligator clamps. The plug will be female, and look like the #8

How do I get to the battery to charge it


To access your battery, take off your side covers. There is a bolt on each side of the back of the seat. Remove the two seat mount bolts and lift the seat off to access the battery. If you only want to charge the battery take off the left side cover, attach you power cable from the charger to the plus cable going from the battery to the starter solenoid. Then, attach the negative charger clamp to a frame bolt or engine mounting bolt. This will charge your battery with out removing the seat.

Procedure for attaching a battery charger to a 2004 XL1200 Sportster Roadster please?


If you remove the seat and the battery cover, you can connect the battery charger positive lead directly to the positive battery terminal. Or, you can connect it to the battery connection at the starter, whichever is easiest to get to. Connect the negatve charger clamp to either the negative battery post or any good ground on the engine or frame of the bike. Once connected, turn the charger on with a 2-amp per hour charge rate.

Good Luck

How do I remove the negative battery cable to remove the battery for charging on a 2008 1200 sportster custom?


You can charge the battery without removing the battery. Find the large cable that comes from the battery where it connects to the starter. Connect you positive charger clamp there. Connect the negative charger clamp to any good frame ground on the bike. You can charge you battery using this method provided you battery charger clamps are not too big.

If you can't do this, you'll have to take the seat off the bike, remove the battery hold down strap, and then move the battery outwards so you can disconnect the negative battery cable.

Good Luck

Need to boost my battery


I'm not absolutely positive on the newer Dyna frames but the older ones had a movable tray that held the battery.

With the seat off, look to see if there is a "jack bolt" just inboard of the battery. If so there should be two bolt on the outside of the frame to the rear of the battery cover. Loosen these two bolts, don't take them out. Now, on the bolt inside the frame, turn it counterclockwise and the battery tray will lower allowing you to remove the chrome top cover and the outer cover. Now you can get to the battery post.

Now, an alternative method of charging the battery is by connecting the positive clamp of your charger to the battery terminal of your starter. Connect the negative clamp to the frame. The large cable that goes to your starter comes directly from the battery and can be used to charge the battery.
