Fitting Battery to R1200RT (2017)
Hi an appeal to the many knowledgeable people out there from one who is struggling. My battery went flat. I removed it and recharged it. I have the owners manual, have looked on this and other sites and searched You Tube. What is the secret/ trick/ knack of refitting the end “plastic door” to the battery compartment before pulling down the rubber retaining strap?
The long positive lead is attached first. The bend in the cable says this lead folds down at the far end of the compartment and the battery rests against this. It reduces the room for the battery in the compartment so that the end “plastic door” with a plastic lug on either side, will not fit.
There does not seem room to bend and route the positive lead on top of the battery so that there would be more depth in the compartment which would then allow the “ plastic door” to fit .
