2012 XCT anyone install the cord/plug for the trickler charger and where and how did you do it.
I did the same. I chose the left side because it is the easiest location to reach without large potential of burning my hand.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.
thumb up Me too. Battery Tender sells a connector that plugs right in. It's great and eliminates the extra connections to the battery. Stacking too many ring terminals to battery is a pain to keep tight.I plug my trickle charger into the socket in the fairing. That socket is hot all the time so the batter gets charged. No need to add anything to the battery. thumb up
Powerlet -- males and females -- are smaller in diameter (and more robust, and connect better) than cigarette-lighter style plugs and sockets.Wsollack
Bill does a powerlet male have to plug into a "powerlet" female or will they work in the OEM female plugs on the 2012 XCT?
