No trickle charger ?? Why not ??I will not be riding a 2018 GW for about one month. Do I need to do anything for storage? I do not want to put the battery on a trickle charger unattended.
Perhaps you mean one can leave a battery tender/maintainer connected for extended periods of time. A "trickle charger" will eventually overcharge and harm a battery.No trickle charger ?? Why not ??
30 years of riding. A daily rider. Maybe 10 or 11 different bikes. I have ALWAYS used a trickle charger on a DAILY basis. Yes. Every time I get off the bike for the night, I attach the charger. It's my daily routine. THAT'S the beauty of a trickle charger......you can leave it connected basically forever. It won't harm/overcharge the battery.
I have NEVER had a problem with a battery. 30 years.
No. I don't mean connected for just extended time periods. I connect the trickle charger EVERY single night. Why not ?? I've kinda 'gotten to know you' from being on this forum. And what I say next might seem like heresy because you certainly know WAAAAY more than I do. But, I think you're wrong about leaving it connected indefinitely. Isn't THAT the point of a trickle charger ?? To just connect it and not have to worry about it ?? It monitors itself, right ?? ...............yep.Perhaps you mean one can leave a battery tender/maintainer connected for extended periods of time. A "trickle charger" will eventually overcharge and harm a battery.
Or your house could get hit by a tornado.Course in all cases, unless you have it on a surge-protected circuit, a lightning strike or grid surge could do some serious damage.
