:newb: alert! After 2 weeks of rain with my girl sitting neglected in a carpark, I've had to clutch start her 5 out of 6 times I've started her up... How do you know when your battery has had it and you need a new one? What's the best method of charging a battery? (Leave it on overnight until the charger says charged..and then ride it for a few hours/everyday?) Does leaving the ignition/engine on, charge the battery the same as riding it? Or is it the cycles of the wheels that do it? Should I be checking the liquid levels in my battery on a regular basis and filling this before I charge it? Should I get a voltmeter thingie? (What are these used for?) What should a newbie look for when calling around getting prices for a new battery? Any particular brands better/worse? And most importantly, can you **** up your bike if you clutch start it too much/incorrectly?
