Finally out of the garage

Mine has been put up since mid October due to being cold. The other day it was nearly 60, so I decided to take it out for a ride. I did not start up it the whole time, but it started immediately! It was nice to be back on it! Although I drove my truck last couple days due to this lovely rain.

Did you have it plugged into a battery tender?

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

Where I had mine stored for the winter, I couldn't plug the Battery Tender in. (No power)
I brought mine home today as well, and plugged the Tender in right away. It's been "charging" all day now, and hasn't gone into the "maintain" mode yet! I wonder how dead it might have been ..................but I did start it up and even ride it a bit over the winter. Hmmm?

Mines in storage at the dealer. He requires a weeks notice to get it out. The best day looked like next Tue. Supposed to be mid 60's & overcast. Now its revised to rain & cold. Oh well.

Mine has a Weird issue with the Battery. And I keep a Schumacher SP6 on it all times (When not in use). Get done riding, Says Fully Charged and Auto Maintains. Every once in awhile it says Bad Battery, Charge Aborted. Happened a few times. But started up. The charger runs fine. When I get the money, I am getting a Lithium battery for mine. 3 Pound battery Vs. 12 or so. And has more CCA's.

mine may sit when the rainy season hits Philippines, late May thru September. rain isn't the problem, it's the flooding of the roads due to crapola infrastructure
