Battery Charging
« on: October 02, 2018, 06:26:21 AM »
Hi.  I tried to search this but no luck - yet Im sure its here somewhere.....so sorry to repeat.
I used to have a R Nine T with a battery charging point on the side, so I just plugged the BMW Motorrad charger in, nice and easy.  I don't think the S1000r has a charging plug like the R Nine T - is this correct? so the only way to put the battery on trickle charge is to remove the seat etc etc?  thanks for your help. :431:

Correct - no factory charging point.

I just finished hard wiring a fused charge point using Anderson PP connectors. All installed under pillion seat. Much easier to access.

Oh, OK.  Thats a shame......  I will need to work something out then.  I thought it would be a standard feature on BMW bikes, maybe the R Nine T is just a better spec'd bike then.
thanks a lot.

Why do you want battery charging point? Just keep riding it as I do with mine never fails to start.

Hi!

I have the same problem, in my F800R there is a plug near the engine and here I put the optimate conector with no issues...

I think what it is the only negative point of my S1000R...

Just fitted an oxford maximiser / oximiser - fused ring leads to the battery and out through the pillion seat. Just remove seat and plug in charger. Easy to fit 10 minute job. 10:99 in the uk  :002:

FWIW, my 2017 S1000R Sport came with a battery tender harness when I bought it, I can only assume it was from the factory because the dealer didn't bill me for it, lol.

Flawless logic seems reasonable. But that don't make it so  :001:

Trust me, my dealer wouldn't have given me the tires that came on the bike if they could have got away with charging me extra for them.

My 2018 came with it fitted. I was told it was installed at the dealer. Was I charged for it? probably but it wasn't a separate line item on the invoice. A must have IMO where climate dictates storing the bike for months at a time.
