BTW, running a charge cord from the glove box is not that bit a thing. I drilled a hole in the glove box just large enough to get the small end of the cord through (30 seconds), took the plastic off the handlebars (two or three minutes and, I believe only required removing a couple of the plastic rivets and unsnapping the plastics), snaked the cord out the back of the glove box and up to the hole where the steering goes through the dash then, along the handle bar to one side, leaving a few inches past where the handlebar plastics end (another few minutes), secured it to a few places to prevent snagging or chafing (another five or so minutes) and finally, replacing the handlebar covers. The only hole is in the top rear of the glove box where it will never show or be of any consequence.
The above was for a 650. On my 400, the only difference was I didn't have to drill a hole. Rather, I took the cord through the battery access hole, then secured the access cover.

Better to have scooted and got lost, than to never have scooted at all.
