I should clarify, I did not cut the wiring of the bike, I cut the wiring off the Nav cradle that I'm not using, spliced that into the Quadlock charger and made it a simple plug and play unit. I don't have any issues cutting into a wiring loom, but I'll avoid it when there's an easier method that is just as clean. I also have a HEX ezCAN that I would suggest you look at for any other accessories, but since there was a perfectly good pre-wired solution up front where I needed it, there was no reason to run another front/back wiring harness for the charger. Keep in mind that this specific connector is only rated for 12v @ 5A. More than enough for all but the highest power USB chargers (I have a 60W on my desk), but I wouldn't try using it for lights or heated gear, or anything large.
