Hey all,
I have a new 2013 Burgman 650. While getting ready for my commute this morning I notice there’s a pigtail under the seat with a connector that looks like this:




It appears to have an inline fuse already installed, but it was pretty dark out and I’m not sure. Anyone know off-hand how many amps this is rated for? I’m thinking I can likely use this to plug in my heated gear rather than run another pigtail, but want to make sure the wiring can handle the load (less than 10 amps). I may have to wander out to the parking lot at lunch time to take a look in the sunlight.

It looks like a battery tender pigtail? If it is, Gerbings makes an adaptor to run our heated gear right off the pig tail.

That's what I was thinking too. I have the Synergy gear, but it's a quick job to splice in this connector to my controller wiring harness. Think I will head out to the parking lot at lunch and see what the fuse is rated at.

Are you the first owner? Any other 2013 owner have that plug from the factory?

I am the original owner--picked it up from the dealer last Monday, and they received it crated and put it together. I'm interested to know if anyone else has this...

Service Dept. may have installed it before putting the scoot
on the display floor, & forgot to remove it.

I bought my 08 used with 305 miles on her and it came with that same plug but I figured the previous owner had done it.

Mystery solved! I spoke to the service guys where I bought the bike. They install a batter tender pigtail on all new bikes they prep for sale. Told me I can put a 10-amp fuse in there with no problems (it currently has a 7.5-amp fuse and I need to pull 8.2 amps for my heated gear). Just one more reason I like this shop.

Sounds like that shop knows what it's doing. ;)

Glad you talked to them because I was beginning to think I got jipped. No pigtail on my 2013.

Can you snap a pick of where they hooked onto. Did they go straight to the battery or to that post on top of the battery cover.

I just hooked up my heated gear plug and hooked them to those post on top of the battery cover. Not sure what you call them.

Finally had a moment to snap a picture of the pigtail for you. It does appear they installed the leads under the battery cover.
