Where are you located and what do you need done to your scout? I’m outside of Jackson TN.
Good evening,Where are you located and what do you need done to your scout? I’m outside of Jackson TN.
Good evening,Here is the page out of the 2020 factory manual showing you how to change your battery. Also included is a picture of your battery for a part number or you can buy one direct from Summit Racing. I too have a 2020 Scout. It takes less than 15 minutes to change it out. Just to haul it to Sloan’s in Murfreesboro and back would be close to $375 if they can fix it the same day which they rarely do as you can’t make an appointment if troubleshooting is involved.

While you are at it, you also may want to check the fuse for that battery tender pigtail on the bike. It should be a 15 amp fuse in the fuse box, and if it is blown you will never get the battery to charge through that plug. But it certainly sounds like you need a new battery regardless.. Then we had tried using a battery tender to charge the battery and the battery wouldn't charge. The little plug that you get that connects to the battery on the side doesn't register something plugged into it now, so I'm assuming the battery is dead dead receiving power.
I had to get a new tire last week on the road and happened to be in Bristol so i pulled into State Line Indian. They had me fixed up in about an hour. Not only was the service excellent but they were wonderful people. Can't say enough good about them.In the future, and I know it's a ways for you, but State Line Indian in Bristol is top shelf, A # 1 in my book. I used to live near there. Honest, courteous and great service. I wish they'd open a dealership in Maine. I started using them when Charlotte changed ownership. I bought my 2016 Roadmaster from their other dealership in Savannah, Ga of which I would give very similar platitudes too. You got this battery thingy down with the good advice you have received from the guys who posted.
Thanks but I was looking for left or right. The pictures up above - one battery shows positive on the left and one pic shows positive on the right. Negative is vice versa. I think positive on the left is the correct one and was just looking for verification..... It does make a difference sometimes.... The last letter on the second model ends in "L" and I think that means left for negativeIf the battery is installed correctly the positive terminal is to the back of the bike. Negative is close to the tank.
