    Eventually a weak battery will be a dead battery,
    Long before it can damage a charging system!
    Change it out before you get stranded some where,

    :s After battery is fully charged let it sit for an hour or 2, re check with a volt meter if you read at least 12.7 volts you have a full charge

    And get a battery tender to plug into the battery whenever you are not riding it.

    TQ

    Remember that your bike is giving you fore warning of impending break down. Heed the warning....:s
