The Harley service manual directs us to remove the negative battery cable behind the crankcase. On your video Bob pulls out the battery a bit, accessing the negative post and removes the cable from there. Is the cable long enough to do that? It would make it a lot easier because getting to the Harley negative cable connection down by the crankcase is cumbersome. Why does Harley suggest that method?
XLs and Dynas have such tight areas for the battery and Bob shows us his way of doing it. Find a way that works best for you that does not cause damage or injury.
