Quick Question regarding Winter

Recommended Posts

ajenda07
Hey guys, my bikes been sitting my garage for about a Month now. Its been pretty cold the past few weeks, below freezing. I tried to start it up to add fuel stabilizer and ride it around to work it into the engine, but the bike won't start. I have an automatic battery charger (battery tender) I want to hook that up to jump it. My questions are: How long should I charge the battery for before riding it, and is it possible that some fuel has froze somewhere in the bike and would starting it up with that possibility be potentially harmful for the bike. Thank you guys very much, my motorcycle knowledge is low.

if its a gel battery you'll be very lucky to revive it.
it wont hold charge for long..well not in my experience anyway.
if it is a normal battery charger,then when green light comes on switch off.
if its a trickle charger ..battery tender leave on.

Sorry that was a little confusing for me, I appreciate the response though. It is a bikemaster automatic battery charger. And the bike battery is the stock one

you should be fine with that charger to leave it on all the time. it will only charge when needed.

When you say it won't start, do you mean it doesn't crank?
The fuel don't freeze so don't worry about that
