Advice please - battery charging
on: January 01, 2022, 11:19:58 PM
Hi,
I have a 2017 S1000r sport . It does not have a standard factory installed BMW power socket, unlike my previous BMWs,  so I bought one from Nippy Norman which comes with battery pigtails. Now, here is my question. Winter is here and I want to put the bike onto a battery tender. But, can I use my BMW Canbus charger into the installed accessory socket as I would on my previous BMW ?  Something tells me that because the socket is installed direct to the batterty I cannot treat it like a factory installed one.  Any advice appreciated....

No you canít use it as the socket is not connected to the canbus loom. The charger should have a non-canbus mode
