I just bought an 09 Silverwing on Wednesday from a Honda dealer in south wales,

I am excited about picking it up in the morning.

I notice it has a power outlet in left hand glove box.

Could you please tell me if I plug in a battery charger using a cigarette socket, could I keep my battery topped up while bike is sitting for perhaps a week at a time between rides.

Thanks

welcome welcome




I don't see the need for plugging in a battery tender for that short a time. Of course I could be wrong......again.

Hi Bikerboy and welcome.
I have a 2011 model and on mine that socket connects to the battery irrespective of the ignition being turned on or not - so I assume yours is the same.

This means you can use it to plug in a battery charger. I sometimes plug my Optimate in there for a day or so now and then.

Enjoy your bike - I'm sure you will!

welcome Bikerboy1000 Welcome to the best Silverwing forum on the web. I'm sure you will enjoy your "new" scooter, it's a lot more of a bike than your Majesty. You will notice the extra power.
I add the paragraph below for most new members because there's a lot of information in the links and may save you some money and work. You'll find you can do anything you need or want with the service manual and help from this forum.
Here are some links(3 below in blue)that will help you learn a lot about your Silverwing. If you can't find what you need in the links below the search on this forum works good, and if you still need help just ask and someone will do what they can to answer your questions.

Hello Bikerboy 1000,and welcome to the best S/W site on ether side of the pond.Most any question you could think of has been discussed here. You could use the socket in the left storage compartment but I think the preferred method is directly to the battery. Many small chargers have the wiring included with them to make a permanent connection to the battery. I may use mine once or twice a year at the most. If you have not already read about it,removing the bulb under the seat is the best deterrent to a dead battery.
Enjoy your new ride and keep us posted.  Howard

Hello and welcome from me, too.

I have a solar-panel battery-charger plugged in to the socket whenever my Silverwing is parked at home - no access to power in the courtyard outside my flat in sunny Salisbury.

(I have one for the car also).
