The video was done using a Touring bike but it has good steps/process for many other bikes.




Battery installation on a Dyna is covered in the next video.

Here is some thoughts on aftermarket batteries and the connection issues that a "one product fits all" battery might present.

Good info on the proper connections, I have found over the years at work most people have no idea what a good or poor connection looks like. Or how to test for it.

Always remove the negative cable on your battery first when removing a battery. When installing a battery, always connect the negative cable last. Negative battery cable... Disconnect first, reconnect last.

Here is a good video explaining why.

  I wouldn't argue with that idea!

  Seriously, we already have some.  It takes longer to get those tools out than it does to just do the job with standard tools.

  But I like your thinking!
