I have had my battery out before to charge it, the air box needs to come
out, just undo jubilee clip and the rubber holding ring off and the
entire thing lifts out.
The plastic battery surround does come off and you will have to undo the
clamp that holds the battery secure, when everything is undone,
terminals ect, it should slide out quite easliy.
I will be doing this on tuesday anyway, I might take a few pics for a tutorial if the weather is ok.
