I know for the models till 2002 where the battery is located in front of the rear wheel.
Place the bike on her side stand
remove the negative battery lead at the left side, just below the transmission tube ( cone ) 10mm socket wrench
On the right side remove the security cap on the positive lead ( cross screwdriver ), then remove the positive lead.
The battery is hold in place with a 'floor plate'. remove both bolts of the floorplate ( on each side ) while holding the palte into place.
gently lower the plate and the battery.
I hope the 2004 model has the same assembly!

FI = Fuel Injection. The FI computer is telling you that it has detected a problem and the code for that problem is "C13". Telephone your dealer and ask what that code C13 indicates is wrong. Then you can determine if you want to try the fix, i.e. "clean the air filter", or if the shop must do it, i.e. "# 3 injector is restricted".
A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: seat removal to get to battery
shoul be one allen head screw on the back of the back seat and 2 more behind the front seat. this will allow you to remove the passenger seat then the drivers seat will slide out from under the fuel tank

yes mate the top yoke needs to be romoved and if the ignition was the original one then the bolts will be security ones which need to be drilled out or simply beak the old barrel of and you should be able to remove the old bolt threads with plires or mole grips hope this helps
