AGM battery, as noted above I bought the battery 7 years ago, but the first three years it was in my scoot sitting in a warehouse while I was abroad. No tender, no nothing.
When I picked up the bike, I needed jumper cables to start it up but got it going and rode home. Charged the battery and never looked back - it is now 4 years ago. I bought a trickle charger, but have barely used it. HD
has got something right!
