Angry What the F#$*

I'm trying to take the battery out, what a complete pain in the ass. I have had 7 sportbikes before my beloved 10. However, this is the worst design I've seen so far to remove the battery. And yes all the lines are removed, it is just very hard to grab ahold of ANY part of the battery to pull it out. Any suggestions?

if shaking doesn't work, tap with a rubber mallet under the tray while holding the bike inverted.

Or let me try to Wheelie it for you.

I think I can knock the battery right out and possibly the motor as well if you wish.

I will need to aquire a football suit first as motorcycle gear is just not padded enough for me.

Have you all seen those Sumo Wresling outfits that make you look like you weight 500 lbs,

that would be perfect!

ya ya ya...

Relax and SMOKE and the answer will come to you!!! Wait until you have to take the airbox completely out of the bike... Tight inside the frame.. I took a file and removed alot of material before reinstalling it.. And yes some WD40 too... Smoke helped alot in this situation... Oh, And removing the tank helps. But yes it's a pain ! Good luck !
