I would run the battery tender cable up under the passenger seat. Then you just use the key to access the cable. That way there is no chance of damaging the cord.

My biggest problem with battery tenders is forgetting they are plugged in and then trying to move the bike! (With the passenger seat setup I would notice the battery tender is plugged in.)

That's what that's for huh? OMG never realized. But I would route it under the seat to the storage area if it reaches.

Going to check that out. Thanks guys.
It didn't fall out as far as I know. It's like that on a friend's gixxer 600 too

But I'd be curious to know it it dangles down for anyone else.

I added one to my R3. I routed it up under the passenger seat and zip-tied it so it would not slide down. Keeps it hidden and the bike looking uncluttered

I simply removed the "dangly thing". I ride year round (California [I know you're jealous]) so a battery tender isn't necessary. When I removed the passenger pegs I also removed the battery tender pigtail for a cleaner look. I can alway reinstall it if needed.
