    Connect it up as normal and charge away no issues at all but don't try to use the lead to jump start the bike it usually ends up with a fire #Chris13

    I fitted a small inline fuse link in the battery fly lead and a waterproof socket just as a safeguard like .
    no probs with it so far , and the the bike is plugged in at all times when sat in garage .

    I've got mine connected up in the garage, but it's through a timer, on for 2hours twice a week, I've heard of too many failures with fried batteries and one exploded battery to leave it on permanent and unattended

    My bikes have always been connected to trickle charger while in the garage, I have never switched it off, it does its own testing from time to time & shows 2 green lights when all is normal, it doesn’t charge if no charge is needed & if there’s a battery problem it shows a red light, OptiMate 111, brilliant bit of kit

    The battery that died was not on the tuono on a Buell and had been on trickle for probably 2 years
