Should be under the seat ... find the two bolts that typically hold the back of the seat down .. remove them to find the battery box.

Alternatively, you could check in your owners manual or if you dont have one ... you might look at the manufacturers web site or www.archive.org.

Lastly, you could stop by the motorcycle shop parts department and mane a friend of the counterman. They know everything ... and are generally willing to talk.

SOURCE: rapid overheating

Hi
The fan should come on when the light comes on, if not check that the switch wires are good & that there is continuity between it the light & the fan
There could be a pocket of air in the cooling system, squeeze the tubes from the radiator to dislodge it
There is a product called a water wetter (probably some sort of detergent) that helps to alleviate hot spots in the engine - Apparently it works well !!

Here's a to some on Ebay ;-)

Causes cylinder misfire


Most common cause is an old spark plug that burnt out the coil. Spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. If the plugs are old replace the spark plugs and swap the coil with cylinder 6. If the code jumps to cylinder 6 you know you have a bad coil.

304 new plug new injector new coil and still misfire


Ford- PO300 codes, do not always indicate the correct
cylinder with a misfire, or if you have several bad coils,
or one that only acts up when it wants to.

It will never be a spark plug or injector

If you look at fuel trim or smell a hot converter, you may
find a bad injector, but not for the misfire is most cases

More then likely you need to change the spark plugs because they are fouling out. Thats the cheapest fix that I would do first! Then check coils.

Changing the final drive oil on a 2006 r 1200 gs


I use a turkey baster and about six inches of fuel line. Put the fuel line into the final drive, then squeeze the bulb of the turkey baster and then put then protruding end of the hose against the end of the baster and **** the oil out of there. The final drive only holds a pint or so. My old K bike had an allen head drain plug, I guess the newer final drives have been "upgraded".
