  4. 2008+ KLR650 Wrenching & Mod Questions
    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...

    I have a 86 KLR that I just had the top end rebuilt by a local pro BUT: When I got it back it needed a new battery so I bought one and ran like a champ until the NEW battery died. Seems like there was no current getting back to charge the battery as the bike is running. So I took out the...
