Well this one is easy. Since the seat is a PITA to take on and off, I decided I would attach a fused SAE adapter directly to the battery so I could either charge the battery with the Battery Tender I use for my other bikes, or connect it to my heated jacket. Around here we rarely get snow, and quite often have rain, but we have our share of really nice days when the roads dry out and it's just plain cold out. You can call me a *****, but if it keeps me riding, I'm going to do it.
Anyway, here is a look down at the battery with the adapter hooked up. There just ain't a lot of room under the seat. The top of the ABS takes up the front, and the battery the rear.
It's kind of hard to tell here, but there is no battery hold-down bracket. It just sits in that hole, and on the bottom of the seat there is a strip of rubber that becomes the hold down for the battery when the seat is screwed back on. So, you have to be careful about where to place wires.
I elected to run the adapter wiring under the negative battery cable and lay the adapter fuse in the depression at the back of the ABS pump like shown below.
I then ran the wires down the left side until the plastic liner for under the seat terminated. I then wrapped it back under the upper frame member and then zip-tied it in two places on the inside of the lower frame member as shown. It should be easy to slip the zip-tie back when needed and plug in right there.
I'm sure this will work just fine. I also think that placing the Scorpio alarm in the tail will work out good too.
Here is a pretty poor picture, but it's looking from the tail down to the battery under the tail cover. There seems to be plenty of room for wiring to the battery thru there, and the body of the alarm can sit in the sparse room in the tail itself, and the proximity sensor can "look" up from the tail back at the seat area. I think my only issue will be getting some LEDS mounted somewhere to blink when the alarm is pissed.
