    Installing a Battery Tender Jack

    image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    I installed a Battery Tender Jack today. I'm not sure what that little welded on loop was used for on my bike. It sure made an excellent spot to install the connector. It's far enough away from the pipe that it doesn't burn. All the connections were soldered and wrapped with heat shrink and fused.

    I'm on a cell phone so pics( but they opened) are small.
    That loop looks(?) like the one for battery vent tube. If it is you might want to check your battery vent tube routing.

    I bought my TW used off Craig's list. It had a new battery. I'll check to see if it needs a vent. I'm guessing there is some sort of nipple on the battery?

    I see your Battery vent tube in the last photo next to the shock.

    From what I can view in pic on my cell phone to me it looks just like the loop in this diagram.

    then mine was not installed right from the dealer I bought my bike new but it set in the showroom for over a year and the battery was dead. so I was told to come back in six hours the battery was on a slow charge. so his is vented just like mine was near the shock.

    My battery vent hose was kinked and it blew the cap off so I got acid all over the bike found the hose under the battery. 10429577_10202934832723889_75955984_o.jpg I now have a sealed battery.

    I bought mine used from a dealer. I posted my issues in my thread Hello best years?
    So I also had vent tube issues. Never personally had a battery blow. But couple of times I've come close, with my plow trucks. And more than a few of my friends have. Cycle battery holds less acid but it's still acid.
    I'd rather OP check and us both be wrong than right.
