I believe it is in the D/S front fender.
A fender brace has to be removed in order for it to slide out.

    The first thing is to find a helper with small hands and have a well stocked tool set! You have to undo the front of the diagonal crosbar that is in the way, then you can bend it a little if you don't have anything to remove the awkward back bolt. The air filter pathway on ours was also blocking access but is removed by twisting slightly as you pull it up out of the way. After removing the battery cables get that small handed person to reach way down with an open end 1/2 or 3/8 and undo the hold down clamp bolt at the base of the battery that holds it down to its platform. (Like it was going anywhere anyways) Dont mix up your battery cables when you go to put the new one in, and get that air tunnel back in place when finished - good luck.
