Battery Chargers 10% off

For those people looking to store their bike for the winter. I've got CTEK battery chargers in stock. I think they are a better battery charger than the Battery Tenders.

YouTube video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHSI_qHOI4U

Plus they come with the lead that attaches to the battery that you can ziptie under your tail and plug it in all the time without ever having to remove the seat to charge the battery.

CTEK 800....Retail: $49.95....Sale: $44.95

CTEK 3300..Retail: $74.95....Sale: $67.45

Spare leads for multiple bike: $11.99


For winter storage....put the bike on a charger, add the some stabilizer to a full tank of gas and you are good to go for the winter.

Too bad i just forked over $60 for a BMW charger... oh well

I have a question though:

I have 3 more bikes that will need tending this winter (one mine and two of others: KLR650, 1983 Honda Nighthawk, and a Gixxer 600 (i think)) What would be he best way to keep all these batteries charged? The BMW has it's own charger, but could the rest share one 3300? I'd prefer a plug and pray solution so maybe some more leads and just juggle charging periodically?

I finally finished packing up saturday. However, I still have inventory and still in business. That's what they make UPS and USPS for.

I'm still bouncing back and forth between Chicago for another couple of weeks.

To answer the question above you just buy the extra leads and then move the charger periodically. Leave the leads hanging out so you don't have to take anything apart....just unplug and re-plug.

Phone number is the same...plus it's cheaper for you to have me just ship stuff for $6 and save the money in gas and sitting in traffic.

You get home from work and it's like Christmas

+1 CTEK's chargers are GREAT! And soooo easy to deal with obviously. I gotta get my victory lined up with a pair of leads now and I'll be set.
