If you are going to changethe battery yourself, here are a few suggestions:
a) turn the battery switch off in the trunk
b) remove the foot rest passenger side.
c) you'll see a metal bar behind the footrest that supports it. Make sure to tie that up out of the way as it can come in contact with the + terminal of the battery and make a mess!
d) the MTP-91 is not a 100% replacement. You'll ahve to play with the front metal securing strip to get it to fit rigt. Not an impossible task. Just be careful, take your time, and make sure the battery is solidly secured.
e) reconnect the battery terminals, restore the foot rest, turn battery switch on, and list to it turn over like a ocket ship!
Get a tender to keep the battery up to par when not driven.
BTW, a weak battery will produce strange effects especially dash warning lights.
