Angry Getting at the battery

Another one from today
So I tried to turn the F4 over today and not enough juice in the battery to start her so today was as good a day as any to fit the trickle charger.
I think the bikes had a recall done as the cross brace appears to be welded into its seat,,,,so what else to I need to remove.
She's a 2010 Gen2 for avoidance of doubt

You should be able to lift the tank a little and remive the bracket. The bracket should not be welded to the rear sub frame. It doesn't look as if yours is welded to the frame either.

Check the service manual avavailable at the top of the section.

I just did the same thing on my 2014. It shouldn't be welded to the frame. It could be stuck to it...nothing a persuader can't handle. If you work the tank up a little you should be able to get it loose from the center grommet. It has a metal sleeve that doesn't bend so it's a tough bugger. I was almost ready to try and remove the grommet itself but was able to get it out with a little fiddling with the tank.

Am I correct in saying the cross member that spans the battery should come out of the sockets either side, see photo of side view and weld

Fragile, your correct my cross member is welded to the supports that are used for the rear pegs to hang of and it's also attached to one of the fixing points of the subframe (the lattice part that the seat sits on)

This bracket is a real botched job design and a pain if you want to get to the battery.
I don't have pillion pegs on mine and don't intend taking a pillion so I removed this piece of garbage and made my own brace bar. The original part doesn't look like a pukka MV component.
