I have been wondering, seeing as the CRF-X's come with a battery charger.
I know that they are compensating for something :thumbsup:........

I go for fairly long rides (limited only by fuel tank :p :eek: :thumbsup:), often very high speed, so that might mean mine is always topped up.

I have got about 3,500kms on the clock now, I have never charged it! :bonk:

You have year round riding, lucky bastard. I've got mine on a battery tender right now since the snow has been flying for a couple of months...SC

Mine stays on a Battery Tender whenever I am not riding. :thumbsup:

never charged the battery in my 400 once, not ever.
Am thinking of upgrading to titanium knee and hip though.

Battery Tender here too. Although, I try to ride every few weeks too, just to keep my joints from locking up. :thumbsup:

Had mine new since April 2003. Never charged the battery. And, had it parked without riding for 2 periods exceeding 7 months. Thought for sure I would have to charge it, but nope :thumbsup:
