+1. I remove the battery in early winter and reinstall it in early spring. Never lost a station setting. Only the clock needs to be set correctly. I agree completely with the order of connect/disconnect. I always forget about the TPS reset. Bike runs great. I haven't noticed a difference once I do remember to do it. I'm always really anxious to ride after the winter off-season.blueknightga6 said:On my '02 I did right the radio stations down etc. But after installing the new battery I found all my stations were there. My headlight came on though. A disconnect and a reconnect solved that issue though.
Any time I'll be more than a couple of days before I ride again, I will have mine on a tender. If I don't, it will go from slower cranking to not starting any time from 7 - 10 days. If you try to start it in that condition, other problems can arise. Its just way easier to leave it on the tender. Started it up back in February, temp about freezing, and it started right up and ran perfectly.billsmith said:How long did your battery last?
