Got the same plugs yrs ago and love them, Much easier to start if you ride in the colder weather also.

So got that Battery Tender installed (yesterday rode 50-60 miles with 3-4 starts) plugged in the Tender,red indicator light on for good connection/charging.Was on for 10 seconds,then flashing green for "almost" charged,then solid green,all this in less than a minute!!Great,battery had a good full charge!! I'm happy...:smile2::smile2:

I just put my battery back in last week. A sure-fire pain in the ass.
I'm going to have to look into one of those battery tenders.
Do you just install a couple of wires and end up with a hidden plug ?

Yes just put them on the battery posts. Red positive, Black negative.

I have been using this one for years ,it's waterproof, on bikes,vintage cars and a boat.All these might set for long periods of time but are always ready to go.I put the tender under the seat or in the tool box spot if it will fit and just plug in the extension cord to it.Stay under 1.75 amps and they will make your battery last longer.It's out of stock in many places I looked but try to find it under $25 in most places,$50+ in others.https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwi33omtldThAhXsxlkKHZadAIEQFjADegQIAxAB&url=http://pokerevsoftware.com/tmksdoz-m425750-mfpsratmkvbeig/&usg=AOvVaw0e7poB2KcEvt_SD3w0s0_u
