Am getting ready to run the new fuse box and harness and clean up my wire mess, and am wondering if there are any issues regarding disconnecting the battery for a couple of days. Tend to recall that some automotive electronics have to be re-set if battery is disconnected or goes dead.

Not sure about a couple of days, but I recently had mine disconnected for a few hours while I did some electrical work on it. No issues to report past resetting the clock.

Only problems will be, you need to reset the clock. Also the trip-meter will be reset.

When reinstalling the battery connections with additional wires I struggled to get the screw into the threaded nut. I cut 2 small sections of a plastic straw, and stick them under the nut. This rises them up tight and easy to screw it all together.

I disconnected mine on a 2015 V1K to attach some Gerbing's connectors and didn't need to reset a thing. No idea how long the backup lasts though.

Thanks everyone. Hawk, I know what you mean from the first time I took the battery out last year. I put some styrofoam under it to lift it a little to be able to get the connections on. I've got too hot leads on there now and thats the reason for putting on the new fuse box. I also rigged up twist tie system to make removal of the battery easy.

EACH of my Vs gets to spend aprox. SIX months w/ the battery OUT, and on my bench in a plastic 2" deep pan.

Aside from resetting the clock - NO issues...!
