Battery tender plug & charge indicator

I used the same exact product as I did with the 250 Rally. I ended up mounting to the same spot too. It`s sort of tucked away, but easily accessible and visible. The installation requires that you remove the left side panels to access the battery, but thats about it. Red to red and black…

Honda CRF 300 L ECU swap
