I have an 08, and have not checked the battery. How hard is it to get to.
+1 That is what I do works great :coffee1:Bart, The first time I checked my battery on my 08 I was suprised how easy it is. Pull the left cover side cover off the bike under the seat and their it is. But be carefull because you will have three rubber gromets that might come off.
During the winter months I will pull the Charging tail through one of the vents in the side cover and put it back on. This way I can hook the Battery Tender charger on it without any chances of scharching the side cover if it is laying in the bench.
