OEM crapped out over winter. Purchased a new one and want to install it myself. The manual says you must remove the swingarm to do it. Seems a bit overkill to me. Anyone done this themselves and if so can you provide any helpful instructions. Looks like with a little wigglin it can come out on the up side. Thought I'd seek advise before starting the project.
Thx

I just checked page 19.6 in the manual and no mention of removing the swing arm.

· Always turn the ignition switch OFF before removing the battery
· Remove the left side cover
· Disconnect the battery negative (-) cable first, then disconnect the battery positive (+) cable
· Remove the band and battery from the battery case.
· Install the battery in the reverse order of removal.

JATO, you must remove that picture for your icon, nice ass by the way, everytime I read a post that you have replied to and my wife is walking by, she's like, oooh, who is that, nice ass...And then it's game on, I cannot ever get through any thread that you have posted on because my wife gets frisky if she sees that pic, please, please, please, change it to something a little less tempting! I am not exaggerating. This is so I can finishing reading the thread without getting interrupted. I really hope that I am not the only one that this is happening to.

Fishman:

That is exactly what the manual says - what Richard posted.
Not sure what manual you have, but you may want to get the electronic version here:

no to change the battery you must remove swingarm and install the Sumo-X swing arm, then remove the tripple trees and install the 8* trees. Then You should consider repainting the bike for any scratches occured, best bet is to contact painter and he can airbrush over where potential "scratches" may be.

Dang Im not even Married and I know how to play that game. Ohh since you have the battery cover off might as well install a FMU and since you would have that installed, pipes might aswell get put on.
