Brutale 910R Battery Charger

The charger supplied with the bike takes endless hours and never turns green. The manual write up supplied says that once the charge is complete the green light turns on. I tried charging the battery a couple of times for more than 24 hrs, the red light on the adapter is on. I had to get the battery charged from a battery store. Can anyone throw some light on the issue...

it is a low current (<1 amp) trickle charger for long term maintenance. If you battery was near dead it could take several days to recharge at that low current rate. For long term storage, though, that is just what you need.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

If it looks like this one!

Best thing to do, is take the charger out into the yard and throw it as far away as you possibly can

I use a CTEK XS 800. It charges fast and is compact.



There are a lot of so called motorcycle chargers out there that are just POS trickle chargers.

I picked mine from Repco here in Perth. I think it was about $100.

Here's one on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Ctek-XS800-12...109129001r9795

They're made in Sweden so you shouldn't have much difficulty finding one in the UK.

Is losing charge a problem on the Brutale, or is it just for storage?
