trickle charger pigtail

I have a 2010 ultra classic that my owners manuel says there is a pig tail that came with the bike to plug in a trickle charger?

Can someone please tell me where its located?
I cant find it .
Also will this pigtail fit a battery tender or do I need to purchase a harley trickle charger?

Thanks

didnt your salesman go over the bike with you ? I think tickle and tenders use the same set up

get to your battery....take a look at the terminals and see if anything is attached !

Tie strapped to the harness on the right side just ahead of the side cover . If you have heat deflectors on your bike look behind the deflector .

On my 09 - its on the right side in front of the side cover. As Schmidtys said it's tied to a wire harness. When you check your oil you will almost touch the connector. It will be a universal connector so just about any charger/tender will plug in.

Pigtails are very easily added -- an easy half hour job. Just look at the battery and see if one is attached. Some dealers route them out the left side, other dealers route them out the right side, just to the rear of the oil tank. Regardless of where the connection comes out, it will be easily seen if you look at the battery. Battery Tender and the Harley charger use basically the same setup/connection. If you bought a Battery Tender, a pigtail connection is usually part of the package. Not sure about the Harley charger (don't have one) but I have to believe a pigtail comes with it also.

On mine it was on the left side tucked under the seat. I had to take the seat off to move it where I could plug in the tender.

I don't think H-D puts them on bikes from the assembly line. I believe that the dealers install them. It runs the range of some dealers installing on all their bikes and some don't install at all.

But I could be wrong about the large touring bikes.
