Hi guys,
How do you remove the left side panel so that the battery is exposed? does one have to remove the seat first?
Thanks,

Seat does not need to be removed. Just gently pull the cover towards you. It is held on by 4 rubber grommets. be carefull not to lose them when taking the cover off or putting it back on

If you have passenger floorboard risers, you will need to remove them to remove the battery if that's what your intent is...

Thanks guys. No, the passenger floorboards are the standard ones that came with the bike. I want to attach the harness for a battery tender and I really did not want to remove the seat.
So it just pulls out huh?
I tried the other day, it seemed kind of really hard to pull out. I didn't want to break anything.
Thanks.

It does pull out, but I suggest pulling the bottom out first...the top does tuck under the seat a bit, but not so much that you have to remove the seat...it is however easier if the seat is off...once you get the harness put on, you can run it through the side panel so you won't have to remove the panel to run the tender
