I was curious to see the first time I removed the passenger seat of my 08 1000RR what some call a "Ford" connector or an insulated female/unisulated male bullet connector lying in the trunk area with a cap on it. I thought it looked like something you could put a trickle charger on the battery with out removing the drivers seat. Cool! Until I was just installing my energy seat and saw that the wire with connector connected directly to the battery and fused at 3A. It appeared to be aftermarket after inspecting the crimped ring terminals and unsealed/proteted connections on the battery posts. Im starting to see the picture I think. After a few stops and 5 miles my battery seemed week, it had a hard time turning over the motor. I think that the battery was week where the bike is a year old hold over and the dealer had a trickle charger on it at some point. I called to tell them about the battery being week and they seemed to be surprised.Hopefully others can chime in and help me clarify further. If no one else has this 12V lead, I guess if the dealer wants it back they could replace my battery for me right?
