Lift up the rear corners of the seat, there is a bolt at each corner.
Remove, take off seat, observe battery.

If I remember correctly you have to remove the two small black plastic pieces located directly the below the seat/tank that have one allen head screw on each. There are screws behind it that allow for removal of the seat. I removed one about a year ago so I may be wrong but it only takes 5 minutes to see.

Thanks for the help all!!!! This forum rocks... I had about 5 calls in as many minutes after posting. The battery jumped right up... Been sitting for a while. By the way... Selling the bike for a REALLY low price just to move it. 2009 bought new in 2010. 3100 miles on it. LITERALLY in perfect condition. Book value is 9,860. Would sell tomorrow for 8,000 OBO just to get it gone (made the move to a cruiser). Clean title in hand.

I was only joking about having to remove more to get to the battery

I already felt like my bike was too slow on a hill country trip in the wind! I was doing everything I could to keep up with all of the 1000s!
