It was my understanding that the alternator wont charge the battery, only maintain the charge.

what maynard said ^^

to add to it, make sure you don't start the car while hooked up to the bike, might fry stuff that way. Think there was a thread arguing for/against doing it while the car is running, might as well be safe and stick with it off i suppose

not sure on that...i was thinking it would maintain enough current to power itself at idle, and would charge battery while driving..?

Last post in the link is correct jump it and then ride it around for awhile to charge the battery. it wont charge while idling

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Why would that be a problem?

You stall it doesnt start then you bump start it

Lucky me, I was taking it around my apartment complex, and happened to run into a guy in my parking lot driving a KTM. Asked him about a battery charger, and turns out he's a mechanic at Kane County Motorsports, he's gonna charge it for me once he gets a ride in.

I didn't get his name or any way to contact him, so if I can't get ahold of him within a half hour or so, can I jump in my car and swing over?
