Battery Tender / power outlet plug relocation

The previous owner my FJR had installed a short fused batter tender lead that he just stuck out from the right side cowling which looked like crap, and I relocated it up along the right side of the fork neck which was an improvement but still not ideal.

So I had been planning on relocating the battery tender connector over to the middle of the left side of the bike so that it would make it easier to connect the charger to as thatís the side of the bike it sits on, and to also allow the power cord for my electric air pump to let me to reach both wheels with the pump easily.

So I ordered a 12 ft battery tender extension cord for $8.90 shipped. After looking at a good spot to locate the battery tender cord connector on the left side of the bike, I settled on making up a custom aluminum bracket to mount the connector to the rear mounting bolt for the rear clutch slave cylinder.

Iíve made up similar brackets like this before for my other bikes and I already had an Inventor drawing for another bike that I only had to modify slightly. The bracket clamps onto the outside of the plug and holds it firmly in position. The 12 ft. extension cord was way to long so I cut off what I needed off of one end of the cord and soldered the ends of the cord to the existing fused battery tender cord coming off the battery.

Let us know when you start making them for sale.

Oh, forgot to say: Great looking work!

That is a farkle every motorcycle should have. Are you thinking production?

That's what the voices of my drinking buddies in my head said, not my words

Looks nice, I have my right angle coax zip tied to the clutch hose, good subtle area down there.
