On the older model Dynas, there were two bolts between the battery and the rear fender. You had to loosen these two bolts as they hold the battery tray. Then you had to remove the seat and look down inside the frame just inside of the battery. There is a bolt head right there. This is a jack bolt. Turn the bolt counterclockwise to lower the battery tray, clockwise to raise it. This will release the battery top cover.

Good luck

It depends on which model you have. The integrated model would most likely have the frame lodged inside the kitchen panels. The freestanding model should simply pull out after removing inlet and drain hose and power connection.

Where is the battery


Under the seat. You either have to take off a side cover to remove the battery out the side of the bike, or take off the side covers and remove the seat to lift the battery up out of the frame.

I'm trying to change the battery in 2001 dyna wide glide I removed the bolt to the left of box that comes up thru a backwards c-shaped bracket and into the frame. The only other thing that I can locate is...


On the older wide glides, you had to remove the seat. There were two bolts between the battery box and the rear fender on the outside. Loosen, but don't remove these two bolts. Back under the seat just inside the frame was a "jack bolt". Turn the bolt Counterclockwise and the battery tray would lower, Clockwise to raise it back up. Once lowered, top cover and outer cover would come off the battery. I hope this helps.

Good Luck

How do you take out the starter?Does the engine has to be taken off the frame?.


No, the engine does NOT have to come out of the frame.

First, disconnect the battery. Drain the primary cover, remove the shifter, foot peg, loosen the primary chain adjuster under the outer cover, whatever needs to be removed depending on your model Sportster to get the primary cover off.

From the right side of the bike, remove the exhaust system and whatever you need to remove to get the starter off. Disconnect the large battery cable and the single wire from the starter.

Back on the left side, there are two large bolts just above the clutch assembly, remove them. They may be different lengths so watch for that. Remove the starter.

Good Luck
