I just got my 2011 XC the other day. LOVE IT! Anyway, the owner manual says that there is a battery tender terminal on the bike, but I can't find it. Can a brother get a hand?

Victory has a plug for a battery tender that plugs in the 12 volt accessory plug on the fairing. I think I am correct on this.
It appears their site is down right now.
The battery is under the chin, 4 bolts and you can get to it. just add a connector that you can get to easily.
The tender will come with the battery terminal.

thumb up Thanks, DD. I will take a closer look tomorrow. I had the impression that a connection was already connected to the battery. I guess I could have just taken the chin off and traced the cable...if the cable actually existed. Thanks again. thumb up

Battery Tender

Just picked up my new CC today. the battery tender cable came in the baggie with the owners manual and a few tools. I will be installing the pig tail in a couple of days. Connects to the batt. terminals just like my old one.

Good
Now, when I get to my dealer tomorrow I will ask where my battery tender cable is

Wasn't 1 in my saddle bag or with the papers they gave me.

Not only should you have received your pigtail, your dealer should have attached it for you at no cost. On my 2010 it was already attached; however, on my 2011, I had to ask for it. The pigtail also was not in my special bag of tricks. As with FOX Business News, "Don't ask for it, Demand it!"

i don't see it through the grill...so i must have been stiffed....past that, what about using the adapter on the faring...looks pretty good to me unless there is diode protection....

Does anyone know if Cross Roads was supposed to come with the terminal too? If so my 2011 doesn't have one installed and didn't come with one uninstalled.

Got to the dealer last Saturday and went straight to the sales manger. He said I will As the Rep about it. If it is suppose to be with the bike I will get ya 1.
i told him was no big deal since the tender comes with 1 anyway. He was real cool about it and said if you are suppose to get it free then I will get you 1 for free

Lucky, I would say blessed.

The only problem I would see (even I was 1 that said to use it) would be the ignition would have to either be on or on park for it to work.

I believe that accessory outlet on the XC dash is directly wired to the battery all the time,I plugged my phone charger into it to see if it was powered with the key off and it was.
