I know how to get to the battery through the side panels for charging, just wondering how to remove it. Does the seat need removed or is there something else that needs to be removed and the battery come out the side?How do I change the battery on a 2005 Honda Shadow 600 VLX Deluxe?
Remove the L %26amp; R side covers.
Remove the (-) cable from the battery.
Remove the (+) cable from the starter solenoid (L side cover).
Remove the battery cover (it might give you more room to work with, if you unplug the fuse box from the main wire harness).
Slide the battery out to the right (taking the (+) battery cable with it).How do I change the battery on a 2005 Honda Shadow 600 VLX Deluxe?
Remove both side covers.
Pull the solenoid off the mount (its held on with a rubber mounting device that fits on two prongs).
Remove two bolts on the right side that hold the battery cover (10 mm socket/ philips screwdriver). Remove the cover.
Push the battery to access and release the negative battery cable on the left side of the bike.
Push it back and release the positive cable.
You may have to turn the battery a little to clear the exhaust pipes.
There should be a bolt at the back end of the seat, undo %26amp; slide back the seat to get access to the battery then there are two more screws to remove before you can remove the battery.
