I bought the same one and the cap is a poor design and doesn't fit well. So I threw on the shelf and wired ctek tender plug up to battery positive on solenoid and a frame ground. Out of the way when riding but very handy if needed.

First thing I am doing is adding an SAE socket for a battery tender/battery minder. They are just too handy, I have one installed on my mower, and my tractor.

Aside from that, what are some other recommendations you all have a for a new 900T sled? I have a 1+1 seat on order, so I can take the wife and kids out, now and then.
I have the 1+1 seat, the wiring for the heated hand grips is quite the install job if you opt for that. One thing I initially hesitated getting was glove box liner and I am happy I did now. It does add some softness but not like the one for xs chassis. What I did like was it makes the glove box sealed and lid becomes solid and more secure. I also added a skid plate for extra insurance.

This is my 3rd sled I have done this to. Works great and you don't need to keep opening the battery cover.

I just went for the seat only, didn't get the backrest, yet. Got any more info on the glove box deal?

Yes, anything that has an SAE plug. It works both ways, so anything that you can run off of an SAE plug will work too, since the socket is always hot. Lots of different adapters out there.

First thing...put Dupont Hxfaxes on and never have to worry about your slides ever again.
I'll keep that in mind when it's time to replace the OEMs.

I guess I'll find out how these are. I've had good luck with most of the ones I've used so far. The one I shelved has a male cap that is a pain in the butt to open up, required pliers to open. All the female style caps i've used have worked pretty good.

Glove box liner has a soft feel good for tossing phone in there. I have usb port also. Glovebox fits tighter and seems more secure and it should be snow tight. A man windshield instead of a tweenie XRS one works too.
