First, take the battery out and check the fluid in all the cells. Fill it just below the high mark with DISTILLED water. Tap water can ruin a battery. Next, you can use your 2 amp slow charger for now, but a battery tender (1.25 amp) would be better for when you buy your MAINTENANCE FREE GLASS MAT BATTERY. You shouldn't have to charge your current battery frequently, but you must check the fluid levels monthly. This means taking the battery out of the battery box because you can't adequately see the fluid level while the battery is mounted in the box. Better off buying that MF battery now.
Under most circumstances, the 750 will adequately maintain your battery's charge, but won't be able to charge up a significantly depleted battery. My charging system works best at about 3000 RPMs but starts charging even when idling.
Wet cells can be depleted because they run low on distilled water as they get warm and the fluid vents through the vent tube. When you charge a wet cell, they loose some fluid through the vent tube as well. This doesn't happen with a sealed maintenance free glass mat battery.
