  1. Some more context: when I bought the Tracer, I knew exactly what I wanted, so I didn't need to visit dealers or anything, I just negotiated the price via email with a bunch of them. The bike I end up buying was still in a crate when I closed with them. So I guess what happened is they told the prepper to just prep the bike, and they probably did a default prep, which to them includes the SAE adapter. That's my best guess.
  2. Just to close the loop on this one: the dealer got back to me and confirmed that they do that to all new bikes, so they don't run out of juice in the showroom.
  3. Yeah, I didn't think that was the best place, but I'm pretty confident I'll have to submerge the bike in order for water to seep through that rubber cover. It's pretty fitted and high quality. The SAE connector I installed myself is also under the seat.
  4. Thanks all for the responses. Looks like now I have 2 SAE connectors then :)
  5. I'm the first owner, bought it new from the dealer. I'll shoot them a message in any case. Thanks for your reply.
  6. Hello, fellow riders. I got a brand new 2019 Tracer 900 last November, and I immediately installed a ton of stuff that makes life easier, like you all know, and among those items was a SAE connector under the passenger seat, for use with a battery tender. I've been meaning to post this for a while, but when I was installing the side luggage supports, I found what looks exactly like a SAE connector on the left rear side (see picture). I followed the wiring, and it has an inline 15A fuse and then gets lost with all the other wires getting to the battery. The brand name on the rubber cover for that connector (Optimate) makes me believe this is, yes, a SAE connector wired straight to the battery, but I didn't risk connecting anything to it without being sure. Did anyone else have this in their bikes? Happy riding!
  7. couter, I could use some (I need three more) #1s, if you still have them. I can also check what numbers are the leftovers I have, in case you still need them?
  8. HGP61, thanks for reaching back, I'll definitely keep an eye on it. They look pretty identical to me (except for the inner slot size), and from looking at the screw taken off of the bike on the related videos on this thread, it was definitely very different from the screw supplied with the kit. If I get to disassembling it again for peace of mind, I'll take some pictures of both screws (and maybe measure them with a caliper) and will report back.
  9. A little late to the thread, but I fitted the OEM heated grips to a 2019 Tracer 900 and a couple of things are different, so I thought like contributing back. 1- I was prepared (or so I thought) with a 12mm hex socket, but the 2019 has 14mm screws on the handlebar!!! Off I went to the hardware store to buy another socket. 2- I did not replace the right side inner screw, as a) the one that came on the bike was identical to the one on the kit on every dimension, EXCEPT b) on the size of the hex slot. The one on the kit was indeed 12 mm, and so the washer from the handguard would not fit in, leaving the handguard wobbling. I re-installed the original inner screw back (the one with a 14mm slot) and now all is well. Hope this helps anyone with a 2019 Tracer!
