I use and would recommend an Optimate. I use these for all of my bikes and they each have an Optimate O1 SAE Weatherproof Eyelet Lead permanently attached to the battery (a 30 minute job on the XSR) and accessible without removing the seat once fitted.Anyone got any good solutions to putting battery on a tender? Don't really to have to keep taking off the tool and seat bracket just to out it on.
Yes, two ways to set it up. One is "automatic" where it only turns accessories on when it detects the engine running. During set up there is a learn process for that. Or, you connect one white wire to a switched circuit on the bike and it powers when the ignition is on, or key on to accessories. I connected the white wire to the OEM connector behind the rectifier, which worked perfectly. I only did that because sometimes I like to work with my GPS with the engine off.Interesting. Need to read up fully but may well go for this. It appears you can tie everything to ignition on?
Yes. U01 has 4 inputs and U02 has 8. The connector boxes are 5 port for 12V and Gnd, one port on each us used for power from the TB or Gnd, so leaves the other 4 ports open for your items. The U01 has two of these 5 port blocks, one for 12V and one for Gnd. The U02 had four of the port blocks, two for 12V and two for Gnd.The TB-U01 is the 4 inputs?
