General Instructions

Though covered in the service manual, many people use creative methods to support a bike while servicing it. This often results in tip-over accidents. Below we list methods that are proven to work. And also the ones that aren't.

Disconnecting the Battery

Unless it is something very simple, it is a good idea to disconnect the battery while working on your cycle. Remember that some wires are hot even when the key is in OFF position.

To disconnect the battery:

  • Remove the seat.
  • Unscrew the bolt on the Negative (-) terminal of the battery. Push the wire aside, screw the bolt back in (this way it won't get lost).
  • Put a piece of duct/scotch tape on the terminal.
