Question Battery Issue / replacement

My 2011 Spyder Roadster RT needs a new battery (so the dealer states at 1,300 miles) but I am find it difficult to remove the old battery. Owners manual states to remove 3 bolts under the seat. Can someone help me with easy removal tips?

i was encountering battery issues in my spyder RT.
tried different different batteries but end up using deep cycle battery which far better than any other battery.
everything is working fine now.
deep cycle batteries can also be used in solar

check this guide best deep cycle solar battery. it will definitely solve your battery issue.

No it likely won't be worth the extra money.
There is NO good reason that the battery in a Spyder should go through "deep cycles".
The original AGM type is as close to deep cycle as you need to get.
The extra money would be MUCH better spent on a small battery tender.
