Hi Folks,

My bike is downstairs at work and the battery has run-out... I can't download any manuals due to firewalls, so have no access to anything which:
1. Shows me where the battery is
2. Explains what the procedure is to jump-start the bike from another battery

Could someone please explain to me where the battery is on a GSXR 750 K7 and how I jump start this thing ?

If someone has a pdf manual, it would be great if you could email to tolga at coubros.com and I could probably answer these questionf ro myself.

Many thanks in advance.

under the seat- but seriously- maybe you should reconsider the whole bike thing- when you first got the bike did you take a minute at all to look over the owners manual?

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.

if you jump it using a car battery then leave the car engine off

True, but everyone has to start somewhere.
On good ol GDC? :lol

When you buy a car and want to know where shit is, what do you do? You look for it. If someone can figure out and take the time to register on a forum, they can poke around their own bike and see what is what. Thats just pure laziness, least make an effort, or an indication of some sort an effort.

Correction On steps mentioned above.....he almost had them right:

Remove the two bolts (one on each side) on the tank infill panels and lift you seat off. And the battery is there. Then place the bolts in either side of your neck and walk around like Frankenstien.

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 right testicle



STEP 3: Connect one end of the Negative(-) cable to to your left breastacle

STEP 4: Connect the other end of the Negative(-) cable to a good solid SHINY, piece of jewelry you are wearing. You usually want to place the Negative(-) cable directly on the dead battery to optimize the chance of jumping.

Seriously though....stupid hurts don't it?

Thanks jgsxr1. Actually, I did look at the manual but that was about 3 years ago, never had a problem with the bike until now, and it's not here with me at work. Appreciate your response.
