Im wishing to change the original OEM battery in one of my BIMOTAs ( SB8K Santa Monica )

Is this a simple remove old , replace with new battery type of thing ???

Or is there any type of electrical related reset or ritual that much follow the battery removal & replacement ( since there will obviously be a momentary loss of electricity in the process between hooking up the new for the old ) ???

thanks for any help

Making good use of that continued membership Daotoys.....

Vort meant "No, simple swap..."...he just missed out the comma that's all...The clocks are same as the Vdue Evo.....in most respects...ECU is part of the clocks...and saves the mileage and whether in mph or Kms per hour with or without the battery connected....as the denomination to miles or Kms is set at the factory....

Clock is one ecu but Santa has another one also with even more purple wires going into it.

For info to others , Santa only has one colour of wiring !!!!!! Everything is purple !!! Shocked

That must be a relief, no more stress wondering which colour wire to cut
