2015 F4 Battery - How to charge?

My bike arrived with a BS battery and BS battery charger. Zero instructions both in MV instruction/service and charger guides.

Is there a connector I can plug the charger to and not have to take the battery out?

Otherwise can just I plug the charger's red crocodile pin to + and - somewhere on frame? Will that screw something up?

Thanks in advance.

Does the battery charger have a connector plug? Yes? Look under the passenger seat, you should find a matching socket. It may have a rubber protective boot fitted.

And if not. Yes, you can hook the red alligator clamp to + on the battery and negative to any solid mount on the frame. Even the engine block.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

@Tony F: Of course the battery charger has a connection plug. The process is outlined very nicely in the manual for your bike. Check the top of each maintenance section to figure out how to download your manual.
