Bullet Connectors under the windscreen
« on: July 09, 2019, 06:29:47 PM »
Iím trying to figure a way to run a charging system for my phone without running a tender all the way from my battery.

Not too long ago I remember reading about someone hooking up a tender straight from the bullet connectors behind the windscreen.

Well, I found and tried connecting but, the connectors are too small and the receiving terminals too large.

Any adapters on the market? Or, a different tender, perhaps?

Thanks yíall!!!

Easiest way would be to wire a usb socket to the accessory wires in the nose and then just use a usb charger cable for your phone.

How'd it work out on the road with it moving around some?
I've got a $60 RAM set up that mounts to the top of the clutch or brake reservoir + a $12 USB fused power cord on my ZRX that works great but that holder you've shown is a way cheaper option.

So far it has been great no issues. Had it up to 100 still sturdy, I did have to play with the position a little, it was hitting the tank on a lock turn to the left.

So, I finally got around to attempting the hookup with an SAE battery tender. Couldnít get the damn thing to work. Not sure if it was my crimps or if I had the +/- plugged in backwards. Tonight I will test to see if the bullet connectors are even getting power.
