If it has a single seat or a double seat ,it should have a bolt at the back .Remove it and the seat should slide up and back revealing the battery.

How to take battery out


The battery on this bike is under the saddle. You will need to remove the rear seat, which is held in with a 6mm allen head screw. Once you remove the rear seat (if so equipped) you will see an odd looking bolt holding down the saddle. It has a cylindrical head over and the actual bolt head under that. Remove that bolt. Remove the saddle by lifiting up and back. You will see the battery right there

My motor cycle will not start if you turn the key it just makes a clicking noise


It sounds a lot like the battery is dead. You can either try jump starting it (12 volt) or replacing the battery. The battery itself is locaated under the saddle. Remove the rear seat by removing the allen head screw that attaches the rear seat to the rear fender. When you remove the rear seat, you will see an odd looking hex head bolt with a cylindrical cap that holds the main saddle in place; remove that also. The main saddle will lift up and back to reveal the battery.

If it starts and the battery charges (run the motorcycle for 20-30 minutes), you are good to go. If the battery does not charge after running it for that amoount of time, you will need to replace the battery.

How do i get to the battery? i know its in front of the rear tire at the bottom of the bike, i need to jump it.


The battery on this bike is actually under the saddle. You will need to remove the rear seat, which is held in with a 6mm allen head screw. Once you remove the rear seat (if so equipped) you will see an odd looking bolt holding down the saddle. It has a cylindrical head over and the actual bolt head under that.

How to install a solo seat on a vintage harley davidson motorcycle


On most vintage bikes, the seat is supported by a "T-bar" that connects to the frame between the fuel tanks on the front end and is supported by the spring seat post in the rear. Most of the solo saddles were designed to bolt to the "T-bar". Simply remove the "buddy seat" and bolt on the solo.

Now there are some conversion kits made that eliminate the spring seat post and bolt the saddle directly to the frame. Others have coil springs in the rear. These are better if mounting a solo on a rigid frame machine.

Good Luck

Need to get to battery on a 2003 suzuki vl 800


To access the battery, you will need to remove the saddle. The rear part of the saddle is held in place with an allen head bolt and the front part of the saddle is held in place with a ringed nut.

Remove the allen head bold holding the rear part of the saddle in place. Lift up and back to remove this part of the saddle. Now you will see a bolt with a slotted ring around the circumferance of the smooth head. The bolt head is at the bottom of what you can see. You will have to use an open-end wrench to remove this one (a socket will not work on this). Both wrenches you need are in your tool kit that came with the bike. Once this is off, remove the front saddle by lifting up and backward. You will see the battery under the seat.

How to access the battery on a 2001 Suzuki Intruder Volusia 800


Use the allen wrench from the on board tool kit to remove the bolt behind the passenger seat pad, above your rear wheel. Pull the pad backwards to reveal 2 more bolts. Same allen wrench removes these two and the strap that secures the passenger pad. Pull the saddle back and you are done. Note that the bolt for the rear seat and the 2 for the saddle are not the same lengths when you go to put your cycle back together.
Battery is under the saddle.

Seat removal


The strap that goes around the seat bolts to the fender under the fender it's self or to the sides near the front of the fender struts or behind the saddle bags if you have them.
They are usually held on by either an allen bolt or a capped hex bolt.
If it is attached under the seat it is held by 1 bolt through both ends to 1 hole.

Raise the seat


First take off the seat, turn it upside down, unscrew the two screws and two bolts that hold the two parts of the seat together. Separate the pillion and rider seat (takes a bit of wiggling), now you can concentrate on the riders seat. undo the four screw that hold all the rubber gromets down (make a note of the direction they are facing), and unbolt the two small bolts on the front. The seat should now come apart, move the bracket at the back of the seat down a hole. Re-attach the two halfs of the seat at the front but this time one hole up. You should see a gap between the two halfs. Put the rubber gromets back on, this is where I went wrong the first time, TURN THE FRONT TWO 180 degrees and leave the back ones how they are. Screw everything back together and you have one raised seat my long legged friend.
