Usually don't have to remove the battery via the seat area. The battery should be accessible via the left side cover. Grab both sides of the side cover at the top. Pull out and down so that it will swing down. The battery is right behind that. Remove the battery restraining strap bolt at the bottom and swing up to unhook from the top. Pull out just enough to disconnect the cables from the + side of the battery (being careful not to touch the wrench or anything to the frame in the process). Move the leads you just disconnected clear of the battery and then slide out the battery just enough to be able to unscrew the leads from the - terminal. Then just slide the battery out the rest of the way.

SOURCE: speedometer cable

First: you unscrew the cable housing assembly from the back of the speedomiter housing.

Second: you pull the speedomiter cable from the housing.

If the cable is broken inside the housing you must unscrew the housing from the spedomiter adaptor on the front axle,. at this point you should be able to pull the broken end from the adaptor with a pair of pliersif you can't pull it at this point you will have to pull the front axle and take the adaptor out and try to remove the broken end.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: need instructions on removing back tire on Harley

I worked as a PDI @ riders in b'ham for a while and had to change a few rear wheels, the 1st thing is to deflate the tire then use a coat hanger wire that is strait. Place the wire @ the center of the axel bolt head and then following the swing arm up to the center of the swing arm bolt head, then use a zip tie to mark the coat hanger. Then move to the other side and check to seeif they are the same . They should be. Then move to the disc break and remove the calliper, do not remove the break line. Once you do this you can loosen the axel nut. I assume you have the back tire off the ground, so now you can move the wheel to the front and remove the drive belt. now you can remove the axel and drop the wheel down and out . do this opposit to put it back on remember to use your coat hanger to reset your tension on the drive belt , hope this was helpfull.

How do you get the seat off a 2008 Harley Davidson Sportster to change the battery


Hi, Jim seat removal can range from the simple and obvious to the complex and baffling for the novice new Harley Davidson owner. Seems like the more expensive the bike is the harder it is to remove the seat. So let's start with the most expensive. 99% of all Harley seats have a male tongue in the front that slides into a female receiver that is either bolted or welded to the frame just behind the fuel tank. For this reason, whenever you are removing a seat you must always slide it backward 3-5 inches For Heritage Softails check for a bolt on each side usually under a flap on the seat. Then there is the seat strap that is secured on both sides, only one side needs to be removed. A single screw can secure it to the rear fender or it may have a bracket with two studs secured by nuts or knobs to fasten the rear portion of the seat. For Sportsters if you have a pillion pad or passenger seat that snugs up against the front seat there can be a screw securing the two to the rear fender, you have to get your hand in between the two seats and force the separation of seat material to see and gain access to the screw. For Touring bikes, there is the rear seat screw in the back that is the caboose of seat fasteners, usually a large chrome bracket, that screws into the rear fender. Care must be exercised in covering this shiny bauble with your hand during the sliding back procedure so as to "NOT" scratch the tour pack. So when all the hidden and mysterious fasteners have been removed, you need to lift it up in the rear, slide it backward a few inches and bingo you have mastered the impossible.

Unless they've changed something, you can remove the upper shock mount bolt by removing the seat and looking for a large nut. Take this nut off and the top mount will come out of the frame.
