    Positive should be on the Rt side near the starter relay. What's with the dot on the + wire insulator? What year/model is this bike? Does this ride have an e-starter?

    Beside it being a reverse polarity battery and lead acid; I don’t see a fuse box.

    I think that it’s the wrong battery. I ordered it from a local bike shop. The first one showed up with the poles backwards. I sent it back. 20/20 hindsight? It was right. Look at the rubber isolator on the plus lead. It only fits if the battery is installed rearward. All my other bikes face forward. I’m a idiot..

    True i guess it is the right polarity i was just dyslexic since it’s backwards from how mine sits.

    You know Bob. I saw Some of your rebuild pics and was like “Nooo!” Too late now. It’ll work. But that’s not me. I’m probably out 50$.

    I love you guys. If it weren’t for you I’d be stranded on first base.

    Just got me thinking, if facing the pitcher is first base to my right or left? Or is first base what ever one you can get to the fastest? Maybe this is why I was always picked last in Gym class?

    Should look like this also the battery strap is wrong and it needs the correct tool strap. Should look like this xz2 batt copy.jpg
