Greetings from Plymouth, WI
« on: November 13, 2013, 01:04:07 am »
I feel like Christmas came a little early this year as my 2013 Triumph Trophy SE (silver)was delivered yesterday to my home in Plymouth, WI.

Looking forward to closely reviewing all the details in the owners manual and checking in with the forum on current and relevant topics.

First order of business is installing a battery tender lead. Given that the battery is located up front and top right, does anyone have a suggestion for best location to route the lease?

All the best and safe riding!

Welcome!  I also am hoping for an early Christmas, maybe even before all the christmas trees go up in the shops  :084:

There is a European style power outlet on the LHS of the bike, just above the gear change lever.  This power outlet is connected directly to the battery (ie. not through ignition, so it's alway live).  You can plug the battery tender in here with the appropriate power socket, saves having to pull the fairing apart to get to the battery.

Triumph offers a smart battery tender and a separate accessory lead to plug into the abovementioned power outlet.  Basically, if you go with the Triumph stuff, it's just a matter of 'plug and play'.

Hi there and  :400:  to the Club !

You might be lucky and find that there is already a battery tender cable
fitted to the battery - It seems that dome bikes had them fitted from new.

Just one screw to remove the battery cover -
remove that then lift the rear edge up and back,
to disengage the front edge rubber mounting.

A tender cable can be fitted to the battery and tucked away such that
it can be fished out when needed without removing the cover
but using the powers socket by the left knee is a neater option,
especially using the Triumph branded Optimate 4 & adapter cable :028:

And simply pull free.

Welcome,
Too bad that you all in Wisconsin are in the same boat as we are here in Maine, getting read to put the ride into hibernation. You'll certainly have a wide grin when spring comes.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
