Hey Becca, the battery should be a piece of cake (assuming you already got to it under the seat or whereever it sits). Its just like a car battery, one ground (black) and the hot/power (red) wire. Just disconnect the two (mine are held on by a phillips head screw), pull the old battery out and drop the new one in place, then reconnect the leads and you're setRebeccaatthewell wrote:Well first I wrecked it in a "soft" slide. Then I waited a year for someone to fix it who never quite could get it done. So, I bought the book and talked to a guy I know who used to ride a lot who is now blind and he talked me though rebuilding the clutch master cylander and then bleeding the line. And when it still wouldn't start I explored until I found the part that was missing (some plunger thingy that was lost by the guy who never got around to fixing it) and I found in on an OEM website and ordered the part, installed it and now it works ... except the battery is dead! And I am scared to death to try and tackle electricty! Now, I am just trying to afford a trailer so I can get the darn thing somewhere where the battery can be pulled off and replaced. Sigh... It has been a long long year.
It is a lot harder when you have no one but yourself, but if you don't do it, then it never gets done.
