At the rear of the battery box on the right side of the bike, there are two bolts, loosen them. Look behind the battery inside the frame where the seat came off and you'll see a bolt. This is a "jack bolt". Turn this bolt counterclockwise to lower the battery tray, clockwise to raise it. If you remove the jackbolt , the battery is easier removed. Either process works great. I just prefer to remove the " jack bolt ". Thanks. RaceTech Please click accept if this information helps you.
