From the Service MGR at Harley shop, you do not have to remove the seat.
Positive connection to the starter above the transmission, you'll see a wire connection here covered with a rubber boot. Negative to frame or bolt from the transmission. In this case connect negative first.
Always connect good battery from car or other bike first and last.
Connect in this order.
1.Positive on good battery, make sure negative is not touching any metal, against anything plastic is good
2.negative on bad battery or on frame
3.Positive on bad battery or starter post on bike
4.Negative on good battery or to frame of vehicle with good battery.
Bad batteries can give off a flamable gas. This way if there is any spark with the last connection it is made at the vehicle that is running and has the good battery that should not be gassing.
check connection using ignition switch on bike with bad battery, lights should come on etc.
