O.K., so I did something stupid!! Hooked up my heated grips for the first time this year and, yes, I left them on and COMPLETELY discharged my battery.

I'm charging it with my charger, so tell me, have I done permanent damage to it?

recharge it

If you had a battery tender, just leave it plugged up for a few days, it should be fine, i left my key on accessory and ran mine down, it took a charge and had no further trouble.

JD, Yes, it is on my car charger for now and will switch it to my trickle charger as soon as it get some base charge.

Thanks for the confidence builder.

Will probably be fine because it didn't stay in a fully discharged condition for long.

A long slow charge will be better than a fast high charge rate.

Ride safe.
