Still having trouble to remove your seat? LH side about midway you should find a key hole where you can insert you igniton key and turn it clock-wise to open the seat hatch. Good enough?

    • 2 Don a face shield and rubber gloves.
    • 3 Remove the battery cover retaining screw from the bottom of the battery cover using a ratchet and Allen driver. Tilt the top of the battery cover out and lift the cover to disengage it from the battery tray.
    • 4 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery using a 10 mm wrench.
    • 5 Remove the positive battery cable from the battery using a 10 mm wrench.
    • 6 Unhook and remove the battery strap. Remove the battery from the tray. Remove face shield and rubber gloves.
    • 7 Remove the two top battery tray screws from the frame above the battery tray and the bottom battery tray screw from the inside of the battery tray using a ratchet and Allen driver.

    • 11 Remove the two starter retaining bolts from the starter using a ratchet and Allen driver. Pull the starter off the bike. Remove and discard the starter housing O-ring.
    • 12 Inspect the two split-ring bushings in the inner primary case where the starter mounts for slack or looseness. Remove the split-ring bushings and spread them to provide a slight interference fit in the primary housing. Push the split-ring bearings back into position.
    • 13 Install a new starter housing O-ring on the starter assembly. Install the starter assembly on the bike.
    • 14 Apply one drop of Loctite Threadlocker 243 to the treads of the starter retaining bolts. Install the starter retaining bolts and washers and tighten them to 24 to 27 foot-pounds using a foot-pound torque wrench and Allen driver.

    • 24 Remove the face shield and rubber gloves.
    • 25 Apply a light coat of corrosion retardant grease or petroleum jelly to the terminals.
    • 26 Install the battery cover and screw. Tighten the screw securely using a ratchet and Allen driver.
    • 27 Place the seat on the bike. Lift the rear of the seat and slide it forward to engage the seat tab in the frame slot.

How do you remove the battery from a Suzuki van van 125 motorbike? mine is flat and i need to remove it to charge it up again.

On my TW125 Yamaha very similar to the Van Van. the battery is under the seat. There are 2 6mm bolts that fix the seat to the sub frame. Try using a torch or light and look under the seat from the chain side. The only other method of seat fixing i am aware of on Suzuki bikes involves removing the plastic panels under the seat and this reveals the seat fixings. Please remember when you remove the battery undo the negative lead first. Please do not use a charger with an output of more than 1 amp. When you refit the battery please connect the positive lead first.

If the recharged battery works OK please check the charging circuit is OK. Connect a volt meter across the battery terminals and see if the volts rise to about 14.5 as the revs are increased. Hope this helps

It is located below your seat. Just try open your seat or from sides of bike. Check the AH of battery and replace it with similar one.

I'm having trouble removing the battery from my 2004 FWDWG Dyna Wide Glide. Any suggestions?

Well. let's see if Harley has changed anything. I can tell you how the earllier Wide Glide batteries came out and we can see if Harley has changed thing drastically. I doubt it.

First, remove the seat. The bolt at the rear of the seat screws into the rear fender. Remove the bolt, raise the rear of the seat and pull it to the rear. The seat should come off. On some bikes, you may have to remove the small sissy bar by removing the two small bolts on either side of the uprights on it.

Now, you'll see the battery box on the right side of the bike. Look just rearward of it and you should see two bolt heads between the battery box and the rear wheel. The are battery tray lock bolts, loosen them but don't take them out.

Now, look just inboard of the battery into the frame. You'll see the head of a "jackbolt". Turn the screw counterclockwise and the battery tray will lower and allow you to get the top cover and the surround off. From there you can get to the cable connections at the battery post.

I hope this works for you.

Good Luck and Ride Safe.

How do i remover the seat the bike has power but when you got to start it all the bikes power dies

Sounds like a flat battery.
Depending on the model, to remove the seat you may have to
remove side panels to expose bolts holding the seat in place.
Then lift it up, it usually has a slot fitting at the front.
Now the battery is usually easy to access.

You'll probably need a small socket wrench, around 8mm to 11mm
These sets are quite cheap.
Hope this helps,

How to recharge the battery on a 2005 636 ninja?

Assuming you have just left the bike for a while and not removed a battery lead so it is flat (not the alternator is shot), then bumb start the bike and take her for a 5 mile journey, without stopping too much. Do some low speed, 3rd gear pulls to 60mph. This will charge the battery.

If it is the original battery, and it doesn't recharge after this, check the condition of the alternator and get a new battery.

Hope this helps matey :)

Battery removal


To my knowledge and on most versions/models, the battery would often be located under the seat. In your particular model, I believe the air cleaner box has likewise to be removed to gain access.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
