I have the 1100 attached to my FJ1200. Been using it for a couple years with no problems. On my Vision I have Drag Specialties Optimate 3, also for a couple years with no problems. I really don't know anything about these, they were recommended by my dealers, but they work reliably and my batteries are strong. I keep 'em plugged in 24/7 when I'm not riding.

Hi Wedge. So when it comes to this unit. Do you just keep it in your garage? You don't install it on your bike do you??? Sorry for the dumb questions, but I think i would just keep the unit in my garage and attach it to the battery leads when ever I needed it. A friend of mine told me he's going to attach a battery tender and keep it on his bike. I must be missing something then. Can you help me out pls. Thanks

Hi 8 Ball,

There's a "lead", maybe 18-24" long, that I leave attached at the battery full time. This comes in the tender package. At one end of the lead are 2 connectors which you will need to attach to the battery. A "positive" and a "negative". This stays attached to the battery. When I park the bike in the garage, I plug the other end of the "lead" into the battery tender which is also always plugged into a wall outlet. So it's a very quick connect and disconnect as needed.

8 Ball,

Here's another way to make use of the battery tender if it's always connected to your battery.


https://www.amazon.com/MICTUNING-Adapter-Socket-Motorcycle-Tablet/dp...


It's an SAE to USB cable adapter.

Anyway, the end of the lead not connected to the battery is an "SAE" connector and you can use it to power things. I use one of the cables in the above link to charge my iPhone while riding. There are other ways to charge devices while riding, I just wanted to show you this option.

Well, I bought this one, https://no.co/g3500 and it is awesome. I got a lithium battery for my bike which I highly recommend. This charger works on it and all my autos as well. Worth every penny.

The 6 years I was back in Michigan taking care of my Mom, I used some off-brand battery tender I picked up at Wal-Mart and I simply left mine sitting next to the bike on a stool all winter long. I ran the bike a few minutes once a month or so, but didn't have it mounted to the bike.

Wintering in southern Texas, I'm too busy riding to take the time to plug in a battery tender....way warmer in your neck of the woods in the winter than Michigan too...

<p>Got a GREAT TRUE story for everyone - not many details, cuz I have had this Battery Tender connection for 7 or 8 years. Goes like this: I have owned 23 motorcycles and NEVER got more than 4 years out of ANY battery/bike in 60 years. Last OCTOBER - I parked the bike after a ride and as I have always done for many years, I connected and turned on the 'tender' to 'motorcycle' - covered the bike and ran from the SNOW!!! Well, the whole frickin' winter for us was the worse in 30 plus years (normally I NEVER go more than 2 weeks without riding) but this Winter/Spring - for various reasons [forced retirement in February included] I never got near the bike until the END OF MAY !!!. It still has the ORIGINAL battery from my purchase in early 2008 - and when I uncovered the bike last week, I looked at the 'TENDER' and it showed the battery with a full charge !!! Unbelieving - I turned on the ignition key - hit the STARTER - and got a VROOOOM right away!!!! UNBELIEVABLE .... but TRUE!!! I am still 'stunned' at that. NINE YEARS - same battery. My first with a 'Tender' - just WOW .... Anyway, with forced retirement at age 73 - I NEED money. VISION has EVERY important accessory and modification including CAMS. Any assistance would be a BIG help. I will MISS all THIS ..... Don</p>
