You can connect a charger to the DDA plug under the seat. The lead that Tecmate sell is compatible with the Ducati recommended "Skyrich" charger or an Optimate lithium charger. I have routed the tender lead up into the compartment under the seat hump to save me having to unbolt the seat to gain access to it. As and when the dealer needs to connect your bike to diagnostics they simply unplug the charging/tender lead from the DDA plug on the loom and plug their computer in. When finished just remind them to reconnect the charging lead to the DDA plug afterwards before they replace the seat. If you wish to mount the lead into the compartment under the seat hump/pad, you will need to remove the pillion strap and then the seat compartment itself to raise it off the subframe just enough to feed the lead through the holes where the strap bolts through to the subframe.Has anyone attached the connector to their bikes for a battery tender. With so little space I’m trying to figure out how to leave one on the bike without taking off the seat each time. Pictures would help. Thanks in advance.
Check here for pictures of my install and hope this helps.
Oh and this is the lead you will need
