Using the knowledge from the last post that it was easy to pull out, I used the bolt of the battery cover to attach the seat strap (need one washer) to the battery post on one side and a screw driver pushing the plastic away on the other and out came the battery with minimal effort.

I guess it just was some sorta suction holding it,lol!!!! honda couldnt have got a tighter fit if they tried! i just used a flat head screw driver and just kept pulling on it, then finally, it released.

    I find it a real B***H to get the battery out, however I found there is a hole underneath the where the battery sits. If you push with your fingers you can get it to rise up just enough to grab hold of it and pull it out the rest of the way.
    Reconnecting the battery is even more of a pain in the ***!

I keep getting a flat battery on my two year old bike, i have installed a new battery and still find myself with the same problem. Ibike is charging fine no problem there, but it seems ther is a broblem...

Check the earth connections as this is the usual cause of a rapidly flattening battery. Probably around the fuse box or ignition switch.

I need to remove the battery from a 95 trophy 900. Ive looked at the bike and just cant see how to gain access.

Start with the pass seat, key lock to remove, then you will find a small ring to pull which will release the drivers seat, pull back a little, up and out, the battery is under the drivers seat.

Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic, key switch in lock position, cant seem to get handle bars to unlock to start bike, have 2 sets of keys and neither will work

Spray lock with wd40(inside) When you try the key, pull the handle bars hard in the direction that the wheel is turned. If you have the right keys, that should work. If your outside in the cold, it could be a frozen lock also, make sure the key goes in all the way. The wd40 (or any penetrating oil) should thaw it as well.

Rear wheel locked while riding, gearbox seems fine as it will go into neutral and through the other gears. Kickstart now wont go down as it seems jammed ?

sounds like you have something lose or broken in gearbox..or clutch or kickstart workings.....i would not ride this bike till you know for sure whats up & its fixed!!....1st thing to try is take clutch cover off & inspect to see if you can see anything broke ..this does need pulling down to sort as the bike may well do again when riding may even need to pull the gearbox.cluster out/in bits to check..this means engine out & pull in bits......
