the pic at the top of the thread clearly shows an access panel in teh back of the frame for the batter. hard to tell if the battery woudl fit thru it tho. u'd still need to pull teh tank to get to it tho, and who knows how hard or easy the panel is to get off.

on the 12R the area where the "hatch" in the above diagram appears is covered in FI electronics etc... I suppose we need to take one of these 14's apart... going to be the only way to tell... dont suppose the cutaway bike photo shows any access points?

fish you are crying about issues you'll never have.....


As for the 12 battery location.... well if you are truely interested in your bike, you'd take an hour or too to familiarize yourself with the location of various components and read your owners manual. Shoot, ALL my bikes come apart when they're new..... makes things much easier on road trips.

I do the same thing with a new bike. It comes home goes up on stands and comes apart get's inspected cleaned and put back together. By the time I ride the thing I know who tightened the bolts (ME) and that everything is adjusted properly I can have the battery out of my 12 and on the ground in less than 5 minutes. I really think I can do it in less than 3 if I tried. But I have a tool ben for each bike that has only what tools are needed for that particular bike. I never have to hunt for tools. I get out the 12 and also get out the 12's tools. Do the same for the 10 and 636. It makes life simple.

this is a new concept to me.

I am totally baffled.

I usually go to full serve gas stations. there they put in gas and check oil. wash my windscreen on my bike.



so much new information is coming at me so quickly. mostly from turboblew.



i cant keep up

Ozzy is right anyway. Being a dumbass I just yanked on the cover after having removed the visible bolts. The cover broke at the non-visible bolt making is plain to see (pun intended) I would not need to ever remove that bolt. Problem fixed.
I think XL is working the sock puppet using our man Fish.
You can barely see XL's lips move!
So they fixed the battery tray, that is good. Point taken.
