            i replaced the battery not so long ago on my 1100RT and i am 
certain that it is exactly the same procedure.
You need to remove the seat, followed by the left hand side mirror assembly 
( classing left with you sitting on the bike ). This mirror is held in by 
spring clips and it will just pull off if you are firm enough.
After that the entire left hand side upper fairing panel needs to be 
removed. Just work your way around it and remove each dome headed bolt as 
you come to it ( there are quite a few).
Once done this panel can be CAREFULLY lifted off and the battery will be 
revealed at the point where the front edge of the seat touches the tank.
Remove the first battery lead and then slide the battery towards you giving 
you access to the second lead which you then remove.Be careful not to short 
anything out when you are removing it!
I hope this helps.
Also be careful not to damage anything as you are dealing with painted 

I am sure that if i have missed something someone will be along to further 
advise you.
