It's behind the cover on the left under where you sit.The cover (black) snaps in place.Pull gently on the top of the cover and it will unsnap to access the battery.

If I understand the question, the battery is 12 volts, but if U put a volt meter on it, it should read at least 12.5 if its good. When U fire up the bike, it should go up to about 13 + volts. Often, a new battery needs to be charged.

First of all there not called bearings if you are refering to the rear shocks. The terminology used is confusing but I think you are refering to the rear shocks. If that is the case there is no bearings. The part you are refering too is called bushings. The bushing is between the shoch and the bolt itself allowing movement of the shock assembly. Over time the bushing develop wear or wear spots which cause a gap in the bushing itself. This gap once it starts will only get worse and could present itself as a dangerous situation given enough time and mileage. The 30,000 miles is merely a suggested time to replace for the worst conditions of riding. Not everyone rides double or runs on crappy roads, so the way the bike is riden has allot to due with it. However a good Harley Davidson Mechanic can examine the shocks and check for wear. Not all bikes need to have them replaced but Harley errors on the safe side factering the worse rinding condition to cause the replacement at 30,000 miles. My suggestion is to have a good dealer look at your shocks and determine if the bushings are okay or need to be replaced. One way of checking this is to raise the back wheel off the ground slightly and see if you can move the whole shock assembly side to side.....not up and down! If the shock assembly moves at all side to side its time to replace the bushings. As a general rule I would replace the whole shock assembly simply because if it is that worn around 30,000 miles the bike was ridin in harsh conditions and you can bet the shocks are not up to snuff either. You will also notice if you replce the whole shock assembly your bike will ride and feel like a new one again. Good luck and don't cut corners.......it may cost you allot more in the long run.

check the wiring under the rear tire. you probably tore the wires. if that's fine. do your flasher work? if they do then double check the bulbs. if they're fine them it could be the tsm ( turn signal module ) Only consider replacing that if the wiring is fine and the turn signals worked fine before
