    Default Charging Station

    Charging station for the Senas and the battery tender done. Battery tender is plugged into the Lamonster Powerplate on the Spydercuff and works great!

    Do you connect your tender every time you park the Spyder in the garage ?
    If so, that really is not a good idea.

    The problem comes in when the battery finally DOES reach the end of it's useful life.

    With the tender connected, that pretty much guarantees that it will start every time at the beginning of the day.
    So when the battery finally fails, and they all do eventually, that will almost certainly happen at some place that it is inconvenient.
    Maybe VERY inconvenient.

    This has happened to me.......once.
    To several others on here too, IIRC.

    It is better to connect it ONLY when you know it will be unused for two weeks or more.
    If it is ridden every few days, there really is NO NEED for a constantly connected tender.

    No, I do not. It's just ready for the next winter this way.

    I like the color schemes of your helmets, they'd match the colors of my 2015 RT-S Special Series. I have a shelf in the shop where I charge the Sena 20s EVOs. I pop them off the helmets and put them on the shelf. It's much easier to stick in the Micro USB plugs with the units off the helmets.
    2015 RTS SE6 Special Series (bought in Nov. 2018 w/9,400 miles)(12,400@7/8/2019)
    All of the following items installed by me:
    lotsa Ram Balls
    Passenger Arm Rests
    Windshield Air Wing

    Magnetic Mirror Mounts
    Air Innovations Seat Cushion
    Red Chrome pin striping on Black hood
    Federal Formoza AZ01 front tires (they're GREAT)
    Small LED bars above radiator inlets
    LED brake/running/turn signals on license plate frame
    Northern Tool cycle trailer
    7' x 10' enclosed Cargo trailer
    LED headlight bulbs, LED fog lights (WOW what a difference)

    The helmet on the left actually has a spider on the back of it. We got it years before the spyder though.

    If you thought you liked the color scheme, check out the back! I bought this years before i ever even thought of a Spyder.
