Long term motorcycle storage - batteries

Postby r90beemer » Mon Feb 23, 2015 10:40 pm

I stored my 2005 R1200RT in a storage unit with no electricity mid November and just last week, 3 months later, started it up no problem. I disconnected the negative from the battery, an Odyssey, and the battery did not drain down and had full strength to start the bike and operate properly. Just an FYI in case you might have to store a bike. :) Tom Moe

Tom, come back to California and you won't have to store that bike! BTW, got the kickstand foot and it's perfect. Thanks!
