We need a little more info. By the way Welcome from Sacramento, Ca. I've never heard about a swollen battery. What bike? What battery do you have in it?

Did some research, came back from Daytona and smelled sulfur,checked battery and it was swollen, so was told charging system might be issue. so ordered new battery an regulator. just looking for location, never saw this happen either!

That happened to me on my 1100. Rectifier/regulator failed and my battery was hot to the touch and the sides were bulging. On my 1100 it was behind a cover down by the right floorboard. Not sure if it's the same on yours.

You can put a volt meter on the battery when running and if volts 15+v it is over charging. That will tellyou if you need a regulator. Swollen battery is probably bad.
