I have been working on a friends HD 2017 Triglide related to its battery.

Today I spoke with Tim at Battery Tender CS and he stated that all modern Battery Tenders have a designed in Time Out function.

The time out only occurs if the Battery Tender stays in the Yellow (LED) charging mode for more than a few days. In my model the time out is 72 hours. Other models have other time out periods but all are a few days.

No time out if Green LED is steady on showing full charge. Green LED comes one once battery is fully charge and the float voltage is about 13 V dc. (Thought he said 14.6 V but not sure after doing internet review)

On my model the time out is indicated by having alternating flashing of both the Green LED and Yellow LED.

Cannot post a video but the photo is of the unit.

FYI
Using a Fluke Clamp Amp Meter the battery tender seems to put out 1.3 Amp or so when charging the battery.
