If you use a battery tender or maintainer leave on for the whole winter a trickle charger will ruin your battery if left on

Get a mainter or automatic charger, WITH a trickle setting, and hook up all year. If you are using a manual trickle charger, I would only run it periodically. Over charging is just as bad as undercharging.

I bought this one for my '86 VT1100. Plug it in every night and leave it until I want to ride. Shuts off by itself, no need to unplug. EASY install.


Just $23..
