    How do you change a battery on a 2008 Yamaha Raider?

    Is it that difficult? When I lift the battery strap off and look for the battery box I just see this mass of wires which I know is thw wire hareness. Have I gone to far in, or not far enough? Seems like that's been the age old question for man for a long time.

     

    Anyway, thanks for the help in advance,

    Edge - batteries generally aen't hidden to hard.  I am not sure where the battery is on your particular bike but I have seen the battery on some of the metric bikes down low - in front of the bottom of the rear fender.  What does your shop manual say?

    If a man speaks out in a forest and there is no woman arround, is he still wrong?  Geeked

     Battery should be under seat. You may want to check out raider performance.com

    Thanks to all that replied. Got the battery out with very little difficulty, and have the replacement on it's way.

    Thanks again for the help!
