How often do you need to charge these batteries?
I've had it almost 3 weeks, no hotstart problems but, for the last couple days it was running really weak and then suddenly would not turn the starter over anymore. I hooked up the charger this eve when I got home from work. It was showing green light (fully charged). I left it charging for a few minutes anyway while I put the seat and all back on. (I ran a tether down by the fender so I can hook the charger up anytime wothout having to remove the seat anymore) After a few minutes of charging I tried the starter and it fired right up! Not only that but the charger light changed to yellow (charging) and has been charging for a couple hours now.
I didnt see anything in the battery manual about periodic recharging. Do these batteries need to be constantly recharged, or do I need to begin looking into my recharging and electrical systems?
