Unhappy Battery Tender

Since I didn't get any information on the 2012 Vision I bought, I have been searching the web to get some answers. The only video I found on getting to the battery was a complicated deal on removing the battery. Any simple way to get to the battery terminals in order to hook up a battery tender? Thanks (sorry about asking all these dumb questions)

I had the bars turned full left, laid on the ground, and installed the charger port.

Make sure to tuck the cord away when not being used. There is a black metal bar I put mine over inside the lower fairing that keeps it up and out of hand way. If you don't, or even tuck it straight down it will drag on the ground and mess up the plug.

If you have scrap rubber laying around, like a old tire tube and some zipties you can do a very good install and it will never give you a issue. I shrink wrapped mine on my WR-450 just to help to keep water out, it exits out the left of the bike right under the overflow tank.

We usually do the install when we set up the bike out of the crate, makes it a ton easier on the set up guys and they can do it when they install the battery in the bike. Make sure you do keep the plug out of harms way, kinda like letting a trailer plug dangle out the back of a truck, it destroys them.
