I will keep an eye on it and probably keep it on the charger on any day I dont need it to commute.
Won't the battery hold a charge?
If the battery won't hold a charge it needs to be replaced.

Exactly at the moment i dont know. Will give it a run tomorrow and I need to get to work on it on Monday and Tuesday but not the rest of the week so will put it back on charge Wednesday evening and see what the charger does.

Well today when I rolled her out of the garage to start my commute to work she wouldnt start so pushed her back in and put her on charge.

Is your commute far enough to keep the battery topped up?
If it was fully charged it would be good to start your bike after 3 weeks....unless you have a drain.

I put mine on charge every week or two, the charger shows green in a few mins. One of them is over 5 years old. Doesn't mean it's going to hold that charge, but unless there's a fault it's good to go.
