Just curious if anyone else zip tied this dangly guy up or just gonna let it hang out.

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.

Mine was already zip tied running horizontal upward along the foot peg bracket.

Strange I don't see that tied to my passenger pegs or anywhere under the bike. I'll have to take the seat off and see if I see it in there.

Oh I thought it was standard. I remember there being one on my CBR250 under the passenger seat when I bought it.
Well, maybe it is standard, but my R3 doesn't have one. I checked yesterday.

Also, there is no mention of it in the manual.

My 2012 CBR250R didn't have one when I bought it, but it did when I sold it. I put them on all my bikes and just leave it in place when I sell them.

Did you buy your 250 used?

Nope, bought it brand new.

If I don't find one I'll have to install one. Do I need something like the attached?

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

That is strange. Wonder why some have it, some don't out of the box. Here it is on my wife's.

If you buy a Battery Tender (this is the product name. It's the most popular trickle charger on the market in the U.S.) it will come with the lead as well as Old School battery terminal clamps

The leads alone are available on eBay for around $5 U.S.D.

Checked in my battery compartment and there wasn't one already installed.

Bought the battery tender kit and now I have one as well :D

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.
