Battery tender. - July 28, 2013, 09:20 AM

I sent my V-Rod Muscle to his new home and replace it with Ducati Diavel. Can I use same battery tender?
Any opinions are welcome.

As long as you go direct to the battery and not an auxiliary power outlet.

I wasn't able to use the same tender when I switched bikes for the reason above. I could go directly to the battery with my SV, but with my Duc the battery is buried under a bunch of crap, so I use leads off of the battery to connect to. The Battery Tender kits usually have all of the necessary options though. I had a Walmart tender with just clips on the end at first.

It needs to be your same exact charger but sold through a Ducati Store for 3 times the price.

That too, but I was thinking about the CanBus system if it was a factory plug.

Can you guys expand on that? What difference does it make hooking the tender up directly to the battery versus using the supplied connector?

It doesn't. What they mean by direct connection is using the clamps on the bat terminals. Which you can do if the bat I easily accessible. The supplied cable connects to the battery and hangs out (so you don't have to remove stuff every time you want to hook a tender up) Either way you have a direct connection to the bat. The suplied cable is just an extension cord.

Make sense?


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

It doesn't make any difference; it's just a difference of what options your tender has vs. how your bike is set up. I have a Monster, and on that bike, Ducati has buried the battery under the tank. You have to remove like 20 screws to get to the battery. So the only convenient access point is through battery leads.
