Where locally can I get just that airbox? Not looking for the fuel tank/airbox combo.

PM Sent regarding the Airbox kit alone without the tank.

Note: There is also a storage kit solution instead of the Fuel Tank solution for the riders that do not require fuel...

The storage box is a good option but really the extra fuel is first prize imho. Been very happy with mine and keeps the bike lean and mean without the bulk of a full rally setup.

It's better to connect this (CTek) lead to the PermanentPower connection - which is FUSED (by a 10A fuse)!

I see that the Optimate charge leads come out with a fuse installed.

But ja, guess it makes sense to add an inline one.   ::)

Adding an in-line fuse can be done - but this is fiddly or lastig but a bit bulky at the least.... plus it has to sit as close as possible to the battery terminal etc, adding to the fiddly part.
Just cut the CTek's eyelets off, terminate spade crimps and stick these into the ACC1 (or 2, dunno which one is the UNswitched set but that's the one you will need), and then Bob becomes your Uncle, simple as shite whilst safe as houses  :P

Surely to charge your battery as close and direct to the battery as possible is prefarble to runing it through the entire wiring loom?

Why should that be true - voltage drop?
A Ctek800 pushes 800mA max, through the std loom rated for 10A.... no squire, no difference, perfect!  :thumleft:

Why not then just fit a Hella plug and charge though an accessory socket?

Because your bike already has got everything to accept a connection for a charger, that is why!
Simply plug in 2 spade connectors and job done.... that's zero modifications!

What I am saying is many of us already have fitted an accessory socket or two to the ACC connectors -  just use those.

Made another bracket



Until I work out what to do with the cockpit area.



Next to find that power source behind the headlight.



The location actually works better than I expected
