Hello to everyone, I have had a Battery Maintainer on my 2009 CBR1000RR while I have been in Hospital and unable to ride it. I went to start the bike the other day and the battery was flat. The maintainer was connected with alligator clips to the terminals and the seat stayed off. Before anyone asks, YES they were on the correct terminals! I'm pretty sure that the battery maintainer is dead. I have a CTEK Charger and Maintainer ready to put on her but I just wanted to check if anyone knows if the '09 Fireblades have a Positive Earth or whether I can connect it up as normal to the battery terminals? Does anyone know how I can test if the battery will hold charge or whether the battery has died? I hope someone can help me out with this as unfortunately I don't know enough about this to know if it's all coincidence that both the battery and the maintainer have died at the same time or whether there is more to it.
