Getting battery out

The bike i'm buying has got a flat battery, so anyone know what you need to remove to get to it. As i need to get it charged before purchasing the bike.
Thanks Gary

All dealers should charge batteries as part of the pre delivery.(if new bike)

You wont need to remove the battery to charge it (if secondhand).. just be careful putting the alligator clips on.

The bikes 3 months old and not been used. I wanted to remove the battery as this is recommended in the manual and is good practice as with a car battery.

in order to get to the battery,you just take the passenger seat off,

then you take the main seat off,which is strapped down by 2 bolts that can be taken off with an L-wrench.

the L-wrench that comes with the bike didnt fit to take mine off so i had to use a different one from the toolbox.

once u take the seat off the battery is there,strapped down.

Remove passenger seat. This will expose two bolts securing the forward seat. The hex wrench in my tool kit fit those bolts. After removing the bolts, slide the seat back and up (just like the pillion). There's the battery.
