Unhook the rubber strap, take off the negative lead with a 10mm spanner, lift up battery a bit and pull out towards you enough to undo the positive bolt and remove lead. The battery should now be in your hands. Make sure your connections are tight when you put it back in, as many problems have been known with loose connections.

Since I had the same unwritten question.....
How the heck does one even get a wrench to the negative lead? There just simply isn't enough room. Not to mention the very real possibility of catching your wrench on the positive terminal while trying. Putting a loose negative wire back on would be even worse.
I was able to tighten the positive pole with a small socket wrench (which was loose from the factory), but only after I taped it all up to prevent accidentaly hitting a ground somewhere.

I pissed around with the battery strap on my 800 today for about a half hour. Had to run a couple zip ties to hold it on at the back.
The designer of the battery compartment should be fired.
Also the f**knuts that designed the windshield, stator, suspension etc. should help that first guy carry out his sh*t along with there own.
All the rest, carry on.
The battery took more time than installing a PR dampner today but was worth it.

LMAO. Once you get on the throttle makes it all worth it though, eh?

really? problems getting the battery out? it takes all of a minute or two to get it out safely. unless the other motor sizes are different, the negative terminal is supposed to be towards the rear of the bike for easy access. dealers have been known to put batteries in backwards, and i've seen a few people put them in backwards to make it easier to hook jumpers to the positive post. but for jump starting, use the starter relay/solenoid in the back and keep the negative terminal to the rear of the bike.

Mine came with the negative terminal toward the front of the bike, positive toward the rear. I worked for half an hour and couldn't get it out. Maybe I'm just inept. So the starter relay would also be ok for jumping and charging?

yup. just make sure to use the side of the starter relay that does not go to the starter. check the battery cable length and see if the negative will reach to the back. i've got my battery sitting on a rolling stool behind my bike and there is plenty of cable to reach it.
