    Bmw lithium charger

    I’ve just bought this for my new s1000rr, the new s1000rr doesn’t have a socket for it And the lead that came with it are just crocodile clips. I want it permanently connected to the battery like the optimate leads. Will I have to butcher the supplied lead or do they make converters? I have no idea what this connector is so any help would be appreciated

    I imagine you hoped to upload a photo - but I can't see anything!

    Re: Bmw lithium charger

    jesus thats an expensive (and fairly useless without the remote lead) charger.

    but,easy fix is just buy a set of "optimate" style leads off ebay,cut the cigarette plug off and solder the lead onto it,making sure to get +/- correct.

    on the charger,the open end of the optimate plug (as in the male/metal prong) is +,and on the bike,the female is +.dont get them mixed up or can short when on the bike if it touches anything metalic

    or the other way,just cut off the croc clips and connect to battery with a couple of eylets crimped onto the wires...

    Agreed expensive but I got a discount when purchasing the bike. Thanks for the tip, was hoping to not have to get the soldering iron out but may end up going that way

    I fit Torberry/Anderson connectors to all 12V charging/accessory leads. That way 1 charger does all bikes and batteries and I can swap around USB adptors, phone chargers or whatever.. whoever made them
