A few general battery questions
Written by gibinmich on 6/8/2010 at 04:48 pm

The factory battery is good for a number of years if it doesn't get too cold or
too dead. I would use a battery tender on anything that doesn't get ridden much.
Parking your bike in a oven is bad for the entire bike...... and small animals
too. Maybe there is a aftermarket battery that will hold better up to the
extreme conditions your bike experiences?
