From what i remember on mine, it did have to come off and what a bear it was to get the seat bolts to align properly during reinstallation.

remove the seat, remove the battery, install the new battery (but install a battery tender pigtail and route it down the side), install the seat (lightly tape the hex bolts to the hex wrench so you can stick them in the blind hole) and secure the pigtail to the frame. now when the battery gets low, the seat doesn't have to be removed to top charge it.

How do I replace the battery on a 2001 Suzuki Volusia Intruder?


To replace the battery:

1- remove the rear (passenger) seat by removing the single bolt behind it. Remove the seat by lifting it up and back

2- Remove the front (driver's) seat). Remove the two bolts behind it and remove the seat by lifting it up and back.

3- Removing the seats will give you access to the battery under the driver's seat.

4- Carefully remove the positive and negative battery cables from the battery, then lift the battery straight up.

5- Place the new battery in the bike

6- Replace the cables, red is positive (+), black is negative (-)

7- replace the seats, and you should be good to go!

How do I remove the seat to get to the battery to replace/re-charge the battery on my 2006 honda 650 vlx..?


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.

I just want to change the battery on my sportster ,1200, 2002 how do i get the seat off, or do i need to?


yes, you really need to remove the seat. Although I am not familiar with your particular model, most Sportster seats are held on by a single bolt screwed into the rear fender at the very back of the seat. Remove the bolt, lift the rear end of the seat slightly, and pull it to the rear. There is a tang on the front of the seat that slips under the frame. Once out, you should be able to see the battery and the strap that holds the top battery cover down. Loosen the nut and remove the hold down strap and battery top cover. Remove the rubber strap that holds the battery into the tray. Disconnect the negative cable first when removing the battery. When installing the battery connect the negative cable last.

Good Luck

How do you remove the gas tank from the tw200 2003. I have got the bolts that held it closer to the back but i cant figure out how to undue the front.


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.

Remove the seat


The two rear corners of the riders seat can be pulled back, you will find two allen head screws, simply remove them and the seat can be removed exposing the battery.
