Hey Guys,
quick question: where is the battery located on a 2015 ? Under the tank or under the seat ? I am picking up the bike Saturday morning and need to install a powerplug for my heated gear. TIA

I found my manual to be lacking everything! they dont even show what needs to be changed at MILE 600 for the first service they just say BREAK IN SERVICE.

But the battery is where you mentioned, i just install a power plug on my bike

When put one on, don't pull the battery because there's no need. Just use the exposed negative (earth) terminal and then there is a jumper positive terminal next to the battery. Just connect the positive lead to that, it makes things simpler.
