Q: Does starting my motorcycle/snowmobile during off season?
A: When we have been asked: Does starting my unit in the winter charge the battery?, Many new riders are surprised to learn that, while starting your bike every few weeks may be good for
the mechanics of it, it could end up harming your battery.
The charging system of your unit does not truly charge up until it gets far above idle, sometimes at high rpm! Unless you hold the throttle wide open for 10 or 15 minutes, you may not get enough of a charge to replace the energy you used just to start it, let alone the energy you needed to replace lost in storage. You need to keep it on a decent maintenance charger during the winter months.

Q: How long will my motorcycle run off this battery before having to charge it?
A: It really depends on your usage. You should charge your battery after every ride to keep it in optimal condition. Your machine should have a charging system in it, so the battery is only used for starting the unit and accepting the charge from your alternator/stator so the unit can hold a constant 12v source to stay running.
Q: I didn't ride it over the winter and now the battery is dead. Tried charging it but it's not charged at all. Is it normal?
A: Any battery needs to be charged periodically, leaving the machine sit over the winter is not necessarily a good thing for the battery or the machine itself , the newer units do have a constant draw off the battery for clocks and memory etc, this is why we do suggest putting a battery maintainer on the unit over the winter. This will help to keep your battery in optimal condition.
