How to: Fit a wired tracker to your motorbike


Most of the press bikes that MCN uses for tests are fitted with trackers. And in my experience I’ve found them to be a bit of a pain as it’s fairly common for them to drain the battery after a week or so if the bike has not been used.

This is partially because the tracker is effectively on standby all of the time, similar to having your phone switched on
24-hours, 7-days a week.

However, the Tracker Nano Plus – the latest generation of tracker as used in this week’s how-to, which costs £133 – has
its own internal power source so will not create a parasitical drain on a bike’s battery.

But how’s it installed? Read on to find out…
