adding battery charge connector
Short story on adding an Optimate charging connector to your battery, battery removal is featured in owner’s manual, thought I’d add some extra images.
Right side plastic cover is pulled off, then loosen Allen key (in yellow line drawing), with that remove saddle.
Remove red data connector from battery cover by pulling up little tab at yellow arrow with fingernail and sliding it off its yellow lip. Lift other connectors up from their blue tab on the battery cover, no need to separate the connector. Pull the thick cable from under its tab on the cover.
Remove the two fasteners in green circles in the correct way, these work a charm but you have to read in the manual exactly how they work. There is no force involved!
Pull up the cover a little at the back, and slide out backwards the two tabs in green at the front.
Remove the battery cover, and you’ll find a tiny battery.
Now you have access to the battery terminals. I added the charger cables to the terminals, fed the + one with its fuse case around the back of the battery, and slid out the connector under the upper frame tube by pulling back the right side plastic battery case a little.
All fiddling around at your own risk please!
