F4i battery died

Today is Friday. I went to start my F4i Wednesday to take it to the Tax Collector’s office to apply for title, register it and pay that $500 or so in taxes and such.

It wouldn’t start. It about half turned over on the first try and then just clicking thereafter. Turns out the previous owner kept it on a Battery Tender Jr. all the time and the fella at the dealership that helps me said that’s liable to hurt the battery’s ability to hold a charge.

I bought a Battery Tender Jr. (12V 0.75A) the next day and charged the bike overnight. Today went to the Tax Collector’s office and did the things I intended. It went fine.
