There does seem to be something specific to S3 though, my FZ1 can sit for 6 months with no charger and spin over like it was ridden that morning, all my other bikes in the past as well. I leave my Speed for a week without a tender and it's noticeable. If it's been cold at all, forget it. It's been like that since new.
I know batteries discharge over time, but I have owned a ton of bikes and other machines, never experienced anything like this. I keep a tender on the S3 all winter and nothing on my FZ1, the FZ starts cranks faster in spring. Very weird.
chargfe them all you want, all you will do is boil the water out of them and warp the plates from overcharging.
A battery tender isnt going to do much when you ride to work, no place to plug it in. my 06 dosnt have efi, so it dont really care about battery voltage.
the program in the computer is set to not allow starting if the battery goes below 12.5 volts. even with no drain, a good battery will go to 12.5 volts on its own after charging. google lead acid battery charging.
