Re: how to remove seat to get at battery
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.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

battery is located underneath the rear seat , you remove the rear seat by
pulling upward on front of rear seat. Pull up and out to remove it from the car. Next remove both cables, the black (negative) first, then the red (positive). Completely remove the bracket that holds
battery. Remove the battery, be careful of any liquid and or wetness on the battery it is acid and will burn your skin and your clothes and carpet. Same directions in reverse order to install the new battery. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.
Remove the bolt at the back of the passenger seat, lift the back of the seat, and pull it off. Remove the bolt at the back of the driver seat, lift the back of the seat, and pull it toward the back of the seat. Remove the bolts on the battery cover, the battery cable bolts, and lift the battery straight up out of the battery box.
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.
The battery is under the back seat. I stand in the middle of the back seat area and pull up on the seat to remove it. Then carefully remove the battery clamps negative first. Remove the battery hold down bolts and lift the battery out.
UNDER SEAT The battery is located in the battery box below the seat.
Open the seat Remove the screw then remove the battery cover Disconnect the negative terminal lead from the battery first then disconnect the positive ( ) terminal
lead Pull the battery ( ) out of 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.
