    Hi all - I have a Zumo 665 that came with my previous Triumph. I no longer have the Triumph, but the cradle and charger for the Zumo is the DIN/Hella/BMW/Triumph type.
    I have the SAE/Battery Tender cable coming off the battery of my other bikes - so I guess I can get this:

    Looks like the Zumo is too old to find a new cradle with a different end. Anyone have any other ideas?

    1. Buy that adapter or
    2. Change the end of the wire on the cradle

    +1 Me too. Cut that clunky DIN connector off and throw it away. Put a standard SAE on it. Way cheaper solution too.

    I wouldn't throw it away. Pass is on to someone who can use it.

    Thanks everyone, didn't think of that - I do believe I'll give it a shot! I don't know how but it seems like a worthwhile thing to learn. I may be back to ask for guidance.
