The Tender should take care of it for you, but yes, you can attach the ground at any good clean point on the frame.

yea the battery must be fully charged before hooking up to the battery tender.
thru-out the winter check the battery voltage. sometimes like mine voltage was way down so i had to 6amp chg the battery for a hr, then reconnected the tender.

Check with your dealer. I was told that all new harleys since 2008 come with a battery tender lead already installed. Also you can get a schumaker maintainer for $20 at walmart.

The Battery Tender leads are a dealer installed option.

I had to take my seat off to get to mine the first time. Theres a lead coming off the pos terminal with a fuse a few inches up the cable. Thats how i found mine. Ive talked to 4dealera and they all say its a factory install since like 2008 ish?
