Re: BMW Battery Tender
It will take a very long time for that light amp TENDER to bring a fully discharged battery up, could be a couple of days if at all. You need a CHARGER not a tender for recovery purposes, a tender works fine for maintaining a charged battery during non riding periods.
As for the BMW tender to which I think you are referring, the LT does not fall in the category of 05 and later as you indicated. That reference is for bikes that have a CAN BUS which the LT does not have. It will still work plugged into an outlet that is hot all the time as the other posters have described.
