Battery replacement

When replacing a battery on a VROD, do I need to remove a fuse? If so which one? Is there a previous post on this? Thnx MRTAZ

I believe that it is just a general precaution to remove the master fuse. I changed the battery on my 04 without pulling it and there was no problem.

Better safe than sorry. It's not as though removing the fuse is challenging.

Why MAXI fuse is removed

Besides the electrical safety this provides, a bike with security that sets automatically (most VRSC bikes sold in Europe are permanently set this way) must be shut down by pulling the MAXI fuse when the system isn't armed.

To do this you need to turn the ignition on and then off (this insures the security system is not armed) and then remove the MAXI fuse before the system arms (within 30 seconds).
