So I finally brought my new to me 2005 K1200S home from the dealership where it waited for me till the weather broke around here.
I use a Yuasa Hotshot battery tender on my 1996 GS where I just plug it in and plug the lead directly into the power port on the bike.
I bought this same tender for my K bike after I thought I read that it would work in the power port with the CAN Bus set up if I turned the key on to power up the port first.
I told the dealer this and he told me it wouldn't work and that I would have to hard wire a lead to the battery.
I'm not against doing that, but would rather just plug it in instead.
Anyone have any advice?
