I guess that's why the bike comes with a battery tender... - Page 2 - MVAgusta.net

If you ride the bike regularly then it is all fine, providing you junk he BS battery. But in answer to the OP's question, yes. It is normal to have to have the bike on a battery tender. All my "modern bikes" would last around 3 weeks max off a tender (08 Ninja, 821 Monster and F3 675). My old Ducati Monster M600 would go months. Alarms and trackers make it a lot worse.

Is that the model you'd recommend? I don't mind paying more for a better quality one but have no experience with buying a tender.

Were I buying today, I would probably buy NOCO Genius units: https://no.co/products/charging/multipurpose

Barring that, yes, I would buy the Battery Tender Plus. I have two four bank and two single units that have performed flawlessly for many years.

If you chose to use the new L-ion lightweight batteries - Like a Shorai, Shido, Anti-Gravity, BikeMaster, Ballistic EVO etc. then the Ballistic EVO Advanced Charger is a good way to go. They are designed specifically to keep these types of batteries in top shape and make them last much longer.

Price and size doesn't mean that much with chargers, a good charger doesn't have to be that expensive or very big. I use a NOCO Genius on my truck to keep the dual batteries charged. It is a very small charger but very effective.

A little prevention is worth a lot with the 3 cylinders. Starting can be an issue. Strong batteries help. I put charging leads on just about everything that uses a battery. Saves a lot of frustration. Cheers

Just to add to the list of LiPo batteries is Earth-X. I have run the Earth-X in a KTM 950 and a Highland Allroad with no failures. I had not so good luck with Shorai & AntiGravity but they were the early release batteries from 10 years ago so may not be reflective of the current state of the product lines. My new to me TVL has a Earth-X ETX-36c battery on the way for swapping out the OEM which is still fine just a preventative swap. The battery case on the ETX-36c is 5.0 mm taller than the OEM so fitment is not assured on the TV or TVL. I'll report back in a couple days if the fitment works out. Update - the Earth-X battery will fit in the battery bay even with the extra 5mm on top. The install does require a little of bending of the positive battery lead but other than that plug and play.

What your guys feelings on the battery controller range of chargers? I'm currently running one on the F3 and that keeps the bugger from dying. I am looking to get charger's for the F4 and S1000RR and the fact that you can get them to plug into the harness is super convinient.
