I thought this might be useful for anyone still risking those side cover grommets every time you charge the battery. I park and plug it in. It hides nicely in the backrest leather sleeve when I am riding. 1.5 to 1.75 amps work great and does not over heat the battery. I find it essential for my recently purchased 96 which is a year for comparatively weak alternators. I use my electric components! Enjoy!;)

I have a cig lighter plug on my charger wire with that same plug and just plug it into one of the sockets on my bike. No wire's to run hide or pull out. :waving:

Good post MDRanger

The former owner installed one of those pigtails on my '98 SE and it comes out near the right foot peg. Very convenient. I always have the Battery Tender plugged in when the bike's not in use.

I noticed yesterday at a store that you can buy a standard 12v recepticle that plugs into the pigtail, which could come in handy if a guy had no other 12v power ports.
