the Fuse

That's what happened when I tried to jump through the battery tender SAE..
I then removed the fuse by cutting it out and soldering the wires back together.

Same but I cut the fuse out before we "needed" it, solid link for starting if needed, only once was enough to be worth while.

you realize why that fuze is there right? A short on you unfused wire = fire! Game over! Wire can only handle a certain amount of power... Just up the fuse to the max for the wire. If the fuse still blows, it's a sign to stop what you're doing.

I know it would be time consuming, but why not just take the battery out of the dead bike and take the one out of the bike that is running. Swap them and ride until the dead battery is charged back up. I know my ZX-14 and my XR 650 will continue to run when the battery is removed.

If you need to jump start from another vehicle, please use jumper leads which are typically 6mm or 8mm diameter cable, crocodile clips on each end. As others have said, the 1.5 mm diameter battery charger tender wire is only for use with low current trickle chargers, definitely not for jump starting or charging from another battery. The tender lead and KTM charger is rated at only a few amps, you will blow something or cause a fire if you try starting with it plugged in. Jump start leads are designed for starter motor current of 50 to 100 amps.

Yes well aware, we have one purpose for that wire so a fuse is useless.

To start it with it down worked fine, with a flat battery yeap bad juju, so no fire, still have the bike, it started when it was down, not flat.

Can't see how it can fry anything, if mine doesn't have enough voltage it just throws the starter out and doesn't draw any current, when mine didn't start the other day I plugged my charger in to the SAE plug for less than 2 minutes and it was enough to start it so I am going to make up some leads to carry on the bike.

Next post on Andy's ride report a story about Maya being burnt to the ground.

Just joking, as long you aren't trying to suck 200 amps down the cables they will be fine, they won't work for a full jump.

The fuze is there to prevent the bike from overloading a Battery Tender, so removing it for jump starting isn't an issue.

Yes that is my take, not sure why a few are getting uptight about it, the OP said down a bit NOT flat as a turd.

Also, so the firemen among us can rest easy, now we have our new battery in place I removed the cable when I fitted the new battery however the SAE lead DID hook us out of the shit which I am happy and grateful for.
