    Battery Replacement for 1125cr

    ANY ideas on how to get the battery in/out of my 1125cr? Crazy small space!! I could not find any videos out there. Can I use a lithium? Any help is welcomed, thanks

    Buellmods.com or Buelltooth.com has the service manual available for you to download for free

    Yes, you can use Lithium, but don't think they are a magic bullet. A cheap battery is a cheap battery no matter the chemicals involved. A regular Gel type of battery is OE and must have at least 220CCA. The 200CCA ones are junk.

    Can I use a lithium?
    you can but i wouldn't. all 1125 batteries the same as most sportster batteries. ETX14L with the L meaning the terminals are reversed from the XB style battery. here's the battery of choice. none finer!

    here ya go. REMOVING fuse box lid makes removal/install much easier.
    Removal and installation of a battery for a 1125CR Buell

    1) Remove back seat with key.
    2) Remove 2 screws from front seat
    3) Remove top 3 screws from fairing
    4) Remove lower 2 screws from fairing and pull to the side.
    5) Unstrap battery
    6) Remove + and - terminal screws
    7) Unhook fuse box in front of battery from metal bracket and pull slightly forward
    8) Remove battery

    ^^^^Listen to Lunatic about batteries...and sometimes Cooter.
    While not a 1125, recently had my battery go out and I followed the advice of the Gurus. You wont go wrong.

    Take the rear fairing off. You can squeeze around it if you have patience, but the time spent removing the 6 bolts and pulling the rear fairing is much less than you'll spend fiddle-f*cking around with getting the battery out with it in place.

    THIS!!!

    I care not to speak of the time I wasted trying to squeeze it around the fairing. Remove the fairing, let it dangle against the bike if you don't feel like removing the seat lock and you'll be amazed at the amount of room you have once it's out of the way.

    And to go with what was said above...spend decent money on a good AGM battery (if you don't want to go lithium). It will make you not hate your life when it DOESN'T die in 3 months from a cold snap (don't ask me how I know).
