Suggestion: To keep your battery healthy and help it last more than a couple seasons, you might want to get a battery tender. I have a 4 bank model to keep 4 batteries charged at one time (lawn tractor, bike, scooter, etc.) they also make a single and double model. I got mine from Amazon but check out batterytender.com for info.

You can permanently attach a pigtail to your bike so it's easy to just plug it in when it's parked. The 4 bank model came with pigtails and the more typical alligator clamps. Not sure what comes with the other models.

Some chargers are designed for maintaining larger car, boat, deep cycle batteries and are not really designed for maintaining smaller batteries. If you find your battery are done after 1 or 2 seasons, you might want to invest in a better charger.

i never had battery problems they seen to last me a while ....the tender i have is a Deltran battery tender, its a wall mount starts off at 6 amps then amps go down during the cycle ... i keep it plugged in during the winter and it only comes on when i turn the lights on in my shed...thats is usually a few times a night to have a smoke instead of leaving it on all the time...im told leaving it on all the time can harm a battery over a long period...taking it inside a warm place (house) ect i guess is the best thing to do for a battery..but i never did that

The Deltran chargers are good. They are O.K. to leave on all the time. At least some of them are.
