Where the hells my battery??

Hi there

I have a honda CBF500 (07 plate) but was given no manual when I bought it.

My bike has been laid up for a while and I decided to start it up today and suprise suprise the battery was dead as a dodo.

Does anyone know where the battery is located? Can’t seem to find it!!

I know I’m going to get a ribbing for this but needs must

many thanks

P.s I’m not blonde honest!!!

Perhaps it’s solar powered.

UNDER YOUR oh **** I forgot.

no not under the seat tried there

Just under the front of the seat on the right hand side is a small panel… pop it off and the battery is under there…

What, not under yer front seat?

Cheers for that will have a look tommorow morning.

Power of the internet search engine you can find here.

Thanks for that EB, very useful but not the model I was looking for. Mine is a 2007 CBF 500.

If you know of any other sites? Please let me know.

Cheers

On the old one it was behind a panel under the seat. You needed an allen key to open the panel to gain access to the battery. I only did it up finger tight so it was easy to open next time. It’s probably the same for your bike as they were pretty similar.

It was filmed on a potato but hopefully this video will reveal something…

The clue is in the question :ermm:

Honestly, there are enough clues. If you can’t locate the battery you really shouldn’t be messing with your bike.

edit: then again I just noticed you screen name :Whistling:

I have to agree here really. get yourself on the OMC bike maintenance course and you’ll learn that plus a lot more.
