They make these cool, cheap things called BATTERY TENDERS.

Give me a call, I know a guy that can hook you up.

Unplug the coffee maker and turn off the subs first, might make that push start a little easier.

This is how a CLSB push start would go. It's worth watching.

On what bike?

Ohhh and yea I just went through the same B.S.! I just gave up and not only bought the new battery but also the CTEK 800 series Charger and installed the permanent leads that I ran through to my tail section for when I need easy access to plug that badboy in! I'm not playin with this battery nonsense again!
