I took the cover of the side of my 02 zx12r and found a heavy guage black wire at the base of the battery and I can see the red cover on the top right. How do I connect jumper cables to this and how do I connect the charger? Is the heavy black wire a ground or hot? thanks, Brian, prof firefighter baltimore, Md

On the 2001 when you remove the cover your looking at the negative end of the battery. The negative terminal is upper left (blue in photo). So that you can charge or jump the bike they provide a thick cable attatched to the positive terminal. That runs on the right and has a big red cap on the end. (Red in photo)

I'm pretty sure your 2002 is setup the same way. Hope that helps.

RR is correct, a long as the dealer hooked the cable up, on my bike it was left unhooked.
