Battery connections
Either Bolt or Screw connecting wires to two poles of the battery, 
One Posative, (wires usualy Red)
One Negative (Wires usualy Black)
 Always check all other connections to anciliries before you remove the main connections, if you re wire them the wrong way it can damage them.

 
How to clean the terminals
Undo the screw/bolt the wires from the battery.
 Then using a wire brush or emery paper clean off all oxidation from the terminal
Then Do the same for the Connecter
Re Tighten and test

This is just a general guide.
If you are about to do your own maintenance, using these pages, I take no responsibility if you get things wrong!
I'll be building these pages as I come to do the maintenance on my or anyone else's bike.
To anyone who thinks that some are the tips are a bit on the "cowboy" style, just remember, I've tried and tested these little bodges. I know they work! If you can afford to buy new parts all the time, I advise buying them. If your skint, like me, these will help to keep you on the road for a while, and to me that's it what counts.
 I know a few so called profesional mechanics who bodge things, or worse charge for work never done. So take care on who you use!
