Unlock the pillion pad, remove the allen key from under it, then remove the two semi circular grommets at the rear of the riders seat. This will expose the two fixings that hold the seat in position, they can now be undone with the allen key.

Most motorcycle batteries are under the seat. Depending on what seat you have, the seat might have to be removed completely. Try removing the side panels on either side of the seat first to see if the battery posts are accessible.
remove the small bolt behind the passenger seat, remove smaller seat. You can now access the slightly larger bolt from the rear of the drivers seat. After removing the bolt slide the sear forward approximately 1 inch and lift up
On my TW125 Yamaha very similar to the Van Van. the battery is under the seat. There are 2 6mm bolts that fix the seat to the sub frame. Try using a torch or light and look under the seat from the chain side. The only other method of seat fixing i am aware of on Suzuki bikes involves removing the plastic panels under the seat and this reveals the seat fixings. Please remember when you remove the battery undo the negative lead first. Please do not use a charger with an output of more than 1 amp. When you refit the battery please connect the positive lead first.
If the recharged battery works OK please check the charging circuit is OK. Connect a volt meter across the battery terminals and see if the volts rise to about 14.5 as the revs are increased. Hope this helps
The battery can be accessed by removing the right side cover and unbolting the smaller battery cover underneath the fuse box. The seat is removed by taking out the two bolts that hold it in place. I believe the two bolts are underneath the fender and go up into the seat You should not have to remove the seat to charge or remove the battery.
There are two seat bolts under the seat that must be removed. Obviously, if the underside of the fender is covered in mud, you'll have to clean it first. A metric socket works best to remove the bolts.
After removal of the seat bolts, lift the back of the seat, then pull straight back; a plastic flange on the front of the seat hooks under the tank, and so you have to pull it backwards to remove it.
With the seat off, removing the battery is pretty easy. A rubber strap holds the battery down; unhook and remove it. Unscrew the lead wires and unhook them (negative first), then pull the battery out.
Install a replacement battery by reversing these steps. Yamaha recommends charging a new battery before installing it.
