  • interesting observation about instruments

    Due to a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff, I have been unable to ride since last June. I have had my 07 R*Midnight on a battery tender for most of that time. Last week, I tried to start the bike (as I usually do every so often to blow the moisture out of the engine and such). The bike wouldn't crank. So, I put a charger on it overnight, and the thing fired up and ran. I noticed two items that perplexed me: 1). the fuel gauge swept, but returned to the post, when before, it had shown @ 1/2 full. 2.) the clock was Way-y-y off the correct time (which it had been before I had to park the bike). Has anyone on this forum experienced similar symptoms?

    Me thinks it's acting like the battery was disconnected and somehow the memory got reset.

      How long was the Battery Tender disconnected? It's designed to plug it in and leave it.

        The battery Tender was disconnected for a week, and then reconnected for another two weeks. Ended up putting the battery on a 2A charger. Charger showed a starting ( of the charge) of 3A, before I let it charge overnight.
