battery tender

Postby deepsix777 » Sun Nov 30, 2014 12:07 pm



Hello everyone; can any one tell me where is a good place to put the 2 wires from the battery so I can plug the battery tender in. I was thinking of under the seat and having the plug come out from the front of the seat on the right side. any help would be great.

Yup. I ran mine up to the left passenger cubby pocket. When I park the bike, I open the cubby, pull out the Battery Tender wire, and plug it in. When it's not in use, it's tucked away and out of site.

Mine pokes out under the left side of the seat bottom. It doubles as a plugin for heated vests etc.

Mine pokes right out of the battery cover 'finger recess' on the right side of the bike.

Thanks everyone for the info. I decided to have it come out from the front of my seat on the right side.

I installed the pigtail so it comes out from under the seat right over the battery. It will make a good place to plug my vest in when I change the plug on the vest.
