You can get a "battery tender" that has a 2 conductor plug in connector, so you don`t even have to take your seat off every time you use the tender/charger. If you don`t have a MF-AGM (Maintenance Free) battery yet, make sure that the electrolyte level is topped up with either distilled water or rain water. A NON MF battery has a vent and vent hose, for sulfuric acid fumes that are created during charging. The hose has usually come loose and disappeared, so the corrosive fumes are venting and circulating around the left side of the battery box. You may want to inspect the battery box with the battery pulled out and see how rusted up it is. I know mine needs to pulled off and cleaned good with a wire brush, then given a good 2 or 3 coats of hi-temp BBQ paint, or silver exhaust manifold paint.

If you have a sealed MF-AGM battery, you don`t have to worry about venting acid fumes, or checking the electrolyte level.
