Bought mine used and it came with one. It is just the Battery Tender pigtail and is installed direct to the battery behind the front cover that hides the battery.

Bigblue where did you put yours so you can plug it in. I'm looking for idea's on where the best place is for it to stick out so I can easily get to it and still be out of the way and easy to install.

My charger came with a pig tail that I wired to the battery and ran the pig tail through the slots of the chin spoiler. Easy access to plug the charger into and at all other times I have a charger cord attached to the pig tail that allows me to plug in my phone or GPS.
Easy stuff.

Ran mine to the hole between the crash bar and the spoiler/ battery box. Zip tied it to the crash bar along the bottom side where it's easy to tuck in and hide.

I ran it out the left side from the battery compartment, up along the inside of the frame and zip tied it to the wire loom running up there. It is tucked in while riding and easy to reach when I park in the garage. I chose that side because that was the side where the Battery Tender Jr. hangs down from the plug in the ceiling for the garage door opener.

That way the wire hangs from the ceiling strait down and I never have to step over it. I plug it in just for the heck of it, even though my bike rarely sits for more than two days. I spent the day charging the battery while riding all around southern Utah. This place is awesome.

Back in 2010 such a cord was supplied and my dealer installed it so its on the left side, with the SAE plug tucked behind the cowl's lower side panel. It comes out just above the shifter pedal.

I did the same. I chose the left side because it is the easiest location to reach without large potential of burning my hand.

Bike is sold
