I have checked my battery voltage with the bike running and I get 12.8 volts. Everything is fine with the bike as is. I undestand the battery is either a sealed lead acid type or a gel type. It has been replaced once since the bike was new (previos owner) and there is Exide documentation with the books. I intend to purchase a battery tender for winter, but most appear to be set for 14.4 volts cut-off. Is this too high for our type batteries ? And if so which battery tender is recommended in order to prevent long term damage from over-charging. All advice gratefully accepted.
