Battery / Pig tail ?
I'd like to add a pigtail to the + terminal on my battery so that I can put a battery tender on it without having to remove the plastic on both sides and the seat. I'm thinking of just adding a wire to the + terminal and running it to the left side of the bike and just zip tying it up neatly. The big thing is that I'll need to cover the end of the wire with something.. rubber? tape? . I mean electrical tape would work, but I'd like to have something a bit more elegant to keep it insulated and secure when not in use.
Does anyone have any experience or ideas on the best way to do this?
Also, what the heck is up with getting the seat back on? I was able to get it off somehow without a lot of trouble, even with my rear rack and case on the bike, but I am having a hell of a time getting it to go back on. I see the tabs on the front of the seat, one u-shaped one for slightly below the tank and one that slides onto the one on the tank itself, but as it sits now, I may have to take my rear rack off and pannier frame too to get the seat back on. Any tricks to this?
Thanks so much,
