You can do that, fill a new dry battery and let the car charge it, or if you run one dead with lights on you forgot to turn off, just jump start it and let car charge it.

Problem is every time you do that your hurting the battery a little and shortening it's useful life.


I ride for FOOD

99 SE 1500, Also riding now, Red ( Second fastest color)
95 SE 1500, riding now, Purple (the fastest color)
88 1500 recovering from deer hit, Phantom Gray (Most expensive color )
82 1100 riding sometimes, Red
Also 80 1100 naked and 86 1200 Interstate, not running yet.

12v, 2 amp +1, the only way to do it, just don't overdo it, you can get tenders that will cut out at certain setpoints, I need to look for one of those too.

For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."
