Disconnectionremoval

Awarning

Always disconnect the negative battery cable first. If the positive battery cable should contact ground with the negative cable installed, the resulting sparks may cause a battery explosion that could result in death or serious personal injury.

1. See Figure 1-21. Remove fastener (1) and remove right side cover (2).

3. Remove airbox. See 1.4 AIRBOX AND AIR FILTER.

4. See Figure 1-20. Remove negative terminal bolt (1) and positive terminal bolt (2).

5. Release battery strap clip (3) and remove battery.

6. Check the voltage of the battery to make sure it is 12.6 V. If the open circuit (disconnected) voltage reading is below 12.6 V, refer to Table 1-2, 12 amp-hour battery, in Section 1 and charge battery at rate and time specified.

NOTE

The engine is equipped with a compression release, so a smaller battery provides adequate starting current.
