Re: Where is the battery and how do I jumpstart ?
Remove the two bolts (one on each side) on the tank infill panels and lift you seat off. And the battery is there.
Found this on the web.
STEP 1: Connect one end of the Positive(+) cable to the Positive(+) post of the dead battery.
STEP 2: Connect the other end of the Positive(+) cable to the Positive(+) post of the good battery.
STEP 3: Connect one end of the Negative(-) cable to the Negative(-) post of the good battery.
STEP 4: Connect the other end of the Negative(-) cable to a good solid SHINY, NON PAINTED metal part of the engine on the dead vehicle. Usually a giant shiny nut on the engine block will do. A painted, dirty, or oily nut will not work. You usually want to avoid placing the Negative(-) cable directly on the dead battery to minimize the chance for explosions. You should only use the ground post on the dead battery as a last resort. On this step you'll get a normal spark as you connect the ground and complete the circuit.
Good to see everyone else jumping in to help this guy out. Now I remember why I don't use this forum very much.
