Love Me (Battery) Tender

Why did one capacitor ask the other to marry him the first time they met? Because he couldn't resistor.

Sorry. I know that was awful. I don't even understand electricity and I'm making terrible jokes like that... Best move on, eh? :-)

So my rough idle problem returned this morning. Tonight I took out the NGK plugs that were in the bike (I've owned it 3 weeks) and they were black. I replaced them with the NGK Iridium ones, but then I had the hot starting problem with backfiring, which--as I researched before posting--either means replace the battery or do the coil mod trick.

I'm not sure how old the battery is or how strong it's charged. I don't have a tender/trickle charger either. I DO know it is an ETX15L though, which I've read ya'll recommend.

I've read a lot of posts and am confused. Do I need to connect my battery to some kind of charger every now and then? I read somewhere there's a difference between trickle and a tender (maybe)?

Before I go out and buy a new battery, should I just try to charge up this one?

Once again...THANK YOU!
