In 2009, I purchased a 2006 yamaha 1700 silverado, and bought a trickle charger as suggested by the yamaha person. This year, I purchaxed a 2006 goldwing , and after reading some articles in wingworld, the impression I received is that not to use a trickle charger on honda batteries. I've only used the trickle once. Is a trickle charger tht bad for honda batteries? Could I hear from some people who have used the trickle with good or bad results? Also, I took the battery out of the bike for the winter and stored it in the bsmt, can i use a charger (either one) while still in the bike over canadian winters?
