Don't do what I did. I had a weak battery after no riding this summer so I let the dealer talk me into a new battery. $ 72.00. I also bought a battery tender Junior. I installed the Tender and brought the original battery back to life. I would like to return the new unused battery, but time will probably find use for the new one. Try the charger, easy to install @ $ 39.00. :cry:

NOOOOOOOOO!!!! The absolute worst thing to do is try to charge a completely dead battery with only the bike's charging system. NEVER ever do this, you are asking to replace a regulator at least if not the stator too. :cry: I replace about four or five charging systems every year for people who do this.....
