Re: RE: Battery vs. Tender

You are right, but for that you have to remove the starter cover. You may
loose the little rubber covering the a pin of the starter cover (another
trip to the dealer).
If the direct connection to the positive is in the fuse box, all you do is
to take the seat off .... so you need your ignition key only.
