Fortunately you can remove the two bolts and prop the tank up with a wedge to clear the battery to pull it out. No need to remove the whole tank.So I got a new battery in yesterday, charge it and go to put it in and (I hope I am wrong here) but you have to pull the tank to put the thing in.. come on.. are the seat bolts not bad enough..
sure at home with your tools.. it's no biggieAll you need to do is lift the back of the tank. Just undo the bolt at the back, lift the bum end up and slide your battery in. Really not a big deal.
Geeez guys I hope you never have to change your spark plugs if this is an issue.
Why would you want to take out the battery at the side of the road?Sure at home with your tools.. it's no biggie
try it stuck on the side of the road..
Well said.You can talk all you want about a CBR but last time I checked this isn't a cbr. You have a fully faired Triumph. Yeah you can say "oh at home with your tools" but you have everything you need to change that battery in your throttle side glove box anywhere, anytime.
The spark plugs are burried under your tank, your airbox and way down in the cylinder but guess what, you can also do all that with the tools in your tool satchel. My point is the battery really isnt that big of a deal especially now that you have done it once.
I am not trying to be bulligerent or start a debate. I am just stating the facts.
you would not WANT to do it on the side of the roadWhy would you want to take out the battery at the side of the road?

Oh god i know.... You'd think that something like changing a bulb would be made easy, after all a bulb will blow and need to be replaced...Just wait until you have to change the high beam bulb, that one's an adventure. evil3:
