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.

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 to Charge a Car Battery Using a Battery Charger

If you find yourself with a dead battery in your car and have access to a battery charger you are only some time away from being on the road again. Whether you are using a small car charger known as a trickle charger or a larger unit on wheels, you can charge your battery effectively. There are safety concerns though. Be sure to check the warnings
1、Locate the battery or remote charging point by consulting the owner’s manual. You can also open the hood to find the battery. The laptop battery may be under a seat, in which case a charging point may be provided under the hood.
2、Remove any plastic covers that may be protecting the positive and negative posts of the battery. Just push the covers to the side as they are usually pliable. Note the location of positive and negative terminals signified by a plus and a minus sign respectively.
3、Locate the laptop car charger so that its cables will reach the battery. Make sure your charger will reach an electrical outlet. Add an extension cord if needed.
4、Place the clamps of the charger on the battery making sure that the red handled clamp goes to the positive battery post and the black handled clamp goes to the negative laptop batteries post. If you are not sure, trace the cable attached to the clamp back to the charger and look for a positive or negative designation. If you are still not sure, stop and seek professional advice.
5、Plug the charger in, making sure that the selection switch is set to off.
6、Select the appropriate voltage and or rate (almost all cars have a 12 volt system). If time permits choose the slower rate and plan on charging the battery for two hours. This selection will turn the charger on. If the charger has a timer, set it.
7、After charging the battery, unplug the charger, disconnect the charger’s cables and start the car.

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.

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

Is the fuel pump located outside the gas tank or inside the gas tank?

HI. This vehicle has a fuel pump access cover located inside the trunk, under the carpet overlay. Once you have removed the carpet; the cover can be seen in the center section of the trunk bed. There are 4 retaining nuts that are holding the cover on the access hole. Remove the nuts retaining the access cover in the trunk and lift up the cover. Once the cover is removed, the fuel pump will be exposed for maintenance or replacement.

What polarity do I use on a universal car charger for my leapster?and what is the correct voltage?

mcdevito75 here, Unless your toy has a 12 volt Battery, your auto battery charger will not work. BUT just in case, There is ared battery cable and a blck battery cable on the toy and-- a red clamp and a black clamp on the charger, Hook the red clamp to the red battery wire and the black clamp to the black battery wire, now you need to know the batterys voltage in the toy and MOST OF ALL your AUTO charger is designed only for car, truck batteries as these batteries are the wet cell type, that is unless your toy has a wet cell battery, if the battery in the Leapstar looks like a car battery count the caps on top of the battery if thwere are 6 caps the battery is 12 volt if only 3 caps the battery is 6 volts. Check with leapstar for the correct charger.

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.
