is my battery dead?

I took my battery out about 8 weeks ago, like a good owner should, and I was asking some of the guys on the forum about keeping it charged. Many recommended a battery tender, which unfortunately I have not purchased yet. I assume by this point my battery is probably dead and i need some other charging device to bring it back up, before I could hook a tender to it.

So what's the best way to bring it back to life, when it's dead?

Re: is my battery dead?

The battery shouldn't go dead just sitting there, if it was good when you took it out it should be good to go, 8 weeks not that long. If it is dead here's the charging chart, you can use a 10 amp fix rate charger. Buy a battery tender and leave the battery in the bike is better for me. Good luck
