    Bike r/r

    Wondering why there's so much concern over external chargers/maintainers when the vast majority of charging comes from our bikes while we're riding. Clearly all variety and vintage of motorcycle charging systems don't come close to the specs modern "designer" chargers embrace.

    I had a new battery installed this week. Drove the bike home, riding it for an hour, some highway included. I put the tender on and it took an hour for the red charge light to go out, then another 8 to cycle through the 1/3 and 2/3 yellow lights before going green.

    I've heard the bikes charging system never really fully charges the batts. elsewhere and I'd rather have the tender on the batt keeping it maintained at 100% which will allow the batt to last longer, IMO.

    All the newer bikes have electronic engine management that puts a small parasitic load on the battery. So "off" is not 100% off. The battery maintainers ensure that the battery does not get discharged.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Almost all the the newer high performance vehicles have a number of computer controlled functions that draw power.......as mentioned, continuously. If in a medium climate a weekly ride probably takes care of charging requirements. If left to monthly, as cold and icy as it is here now, it just beats the crap out of the battery, shortening itís life.
    As always, YMMV
    enjoy the forum.
