Hook up the battery tender for the K1100 LT

I need to know how to install the battery tender for my 1996 BMW 1100 LT. Is there a way to just lift up the seat and hook up the jumpers to the battery without taking off all the brackets, etc...

Am I missing something.

The battery tender I have installed on my 2006 Street Glide is wired directly to the battery + & - post and has a guick connector that you can plug the charging unit into when needed. Mine was purchased from the Harley Davidson Dealer for around $35.00 No need to remove seat or anything after the installation.

How do I replace a 1995 BMW K1100 LT Battery?


Disconnect the multiplug to the Motronic brain and move the wiring loom out if the way. Loosen the screw holding the brain to the battery frame and remove it. Loosen the long screws holding the battery in place and remove the frame. Put the seat down and go round to the battery side of the bike and remove the side panel. Now unbolt the battery terminals - neg first then positive. When free, remove the battery. Installation is the reverse process.

My radio on my 1997 BMW K1100 LT is displaying 654 then a smaller 4. Is this a fault code? The radio will not accept ant combination of button pressing. Is it fixable?


It's an incorrectly entered code. Turn the ignition off. Hold down the ST button and turn the ignition on and keep holding until the button until the display clears. Now enter the correct code.

I have a 1996 BMW1100 LT. I want to hook up a battery tender to it during the winter. I am asking how to hook the battery jumpers without taking off all the brackets, etc... Can that be done?


If you have a BMW style power outlet for accessories such as heated clothing you can use the battery tender to charge your battery through that connection. I have an '04 R1150RT which I've been charging this way since I bought it. It has a 15 amp fuse which is adequate for charging with a low amperage charger link the Battery Tender or Battery Tender JR. Don't use the connection to jump the battery as the starter will pull too much current through the 15 amp fuse. You can connect the SAE type Battery Tender leads to an SAE to BMW male outlet cable to make the connection. Alternately, you could wire a cable to the batter with an SAE connector on it and bring the SAE connector end out under the seat and plug it in that way. You can store the SAE end under the seat when not in use and not worry about it shorting out since the exposed metal end of the SAE connector is the ground connection.
