where to store battery over winter season
Posted October 26, 2003 - 05:29 PM
I was wondering if I should buy a battery tender and store the battery in the garage (removed from the bike)and constantly hooked up to the batt. tender.
Or should I remove the batt. and leave it inside the house without charging it until spring?

It just so happens I am an expert in this field. I own an Interstate Battery distributorship and I deal with those types of questions everyday. With a small battery like yours maintaining your battery is critical to the longevity of your battery. batties self discharge 13% a month so you need to charge your battery monthly. A battery tender is the best way to do this, all you have to do is hook it up and forget about it. I do this exact thing to all of my seasonal toys and I never have battery problems. Of course I also have great batteries in my toys! lol.
