    My 2013 Shadow will spend winter in the garage. It will get below zero in there. I want to take the battery into the basement. Simple question to those who know: Will anything happen to the ECU if it is without power for that long? 5ish months? Thank you and Best, Steve

    I've been using a Delran battery tender for many years without any problems. Recently I've noticed that the light on the charger is alternating between red, flashing green and solid green. This has never happened before. Is the charger going bad or is it the battery?

    2018 shadow aero 750. I just recently noticed that when I go to start the bike is lags on startup. It seems to run fine when it's started and moving, no power issues, however, when I go to start it up, it turns over but struggles, then resets my trip meter and clock. Once it's going it's fine...

    Hi all, So over the winter I let my battery go low, its usually on a solar powered trickle charger but I moved house and was lazy and didn't set it up. Anyway went out to fire the bike up, the starter would turn sluggishly but the engine wouldn't fire. I bought an Oxford Optimiser as there is...

    Plan A was to remove the seat. One of the screws is stripped so that’s a non-starter for now. Removed right side panel and am looking at what’s in the photo attached. Is there a place here to attach the positive clip, or am I out of luck? Thanks!

    I have a 2005 Sabre VT1100. I put a new usb charger and 2 speaker sound system on it the other day but it is draining the battery. Is there a higher power battery I can get or is there just too much pull?
