dont start the car when you jump start the battery is powerful enough.

i have battery tender hard wire chords on the battery and their alligator clips in my tank bag so I never have to remove a seat or fender for jumping. plus it's easier to hook car sized jumper cables to the alligator clips vs. the battery it self. i suggest that to everyone.

just make sure your fuse on the chord is good...it won't jump with a blown fuse, but should you screw up, and blow the fuse, you potentially saved the bike's wiring.


i also have the 25' extension just in case i need to hook the bike to another bike with the same cable coming off the battery, you just have to watch the polarity. haven't tried it yet though, and i hope i never have to.

Again just to clarify: Do NOT jump the bike from a running car.
The amperage being pushed through the system by the alternator is much more than the bikes charging system is rated for and can damage the regulator / rectifier.
