    I converted the FTR over to a lithium battery. Any maintainer/tender recommendations? I was told I cannot use a standard tender. TIA - JJ

    A few of my Battery Tender Jr's have the ability to select lithium mode. I think it is the 800mA version. BTW, I put a lithium on my ZX, not sure I like it yet, does not seem to charge well from running the bike...

    which one did you get for the FTR?

    Make sure you keep an extra in the trailer.
