Do you guys use them? What brand's?.....Also will riding the bike for a few hours charge the battery back up to a full charge?

Deltran's Battery Tender (yes, that's the name). I have pig tail connections on all my bikes and have them hooked up to a Battery Tender when ever the bikes are not in use. My street bike battery is eight years old and cranks and holds a charge just fine. The battery on my 07 WR (bought in Dec 2006) is the original and works just fine.

The Battery Tender JR. is more than adequate for you motorcycle. No need to buy the more expensive Battery Tender.

I bought one of these thinking it would last maybe a year or so ...... 3 1/3 years later it's still going strong! HF puts it on sale a couple times a year for around 5 bucks.

That is what I use on my bike/lawn mower. Works pretty good and was pretty inexpensive. Picked mine up at CycleGear after I picked up this WR.

I have a RickyStator wired DC, so my batt charges up pretty good while riding it. I don't remember it charging as well with the stock stator.

My best performing one is the Schumacher. I opt for the manual trickle charger.
