    Thanks all! I think i'm going to ride it until winter then, triple it up. I might think about the Shep method depending on the weather. Thanks for all the info though.

    When the bikes/Automotive vehicles have not been run for a while there's no coolant or or oil to lubricate the seals.Same with engine seals and brakes etc.Sometimes just running the bikes can cure things,for a while or ongoing.

    The worst thing you can do to any Automotive vehicle is not run it at least once a month for a decent period.This is why so many Motorcycles come out of,"Winterizing" for the,"Riding Season" and the owners have problems.

    Also if the bike is not going to be used daily put it on a Maintenance charger to preserve the battery life,

    Harbor Freight do what seems to be a decent one,

    and in the UK this is the one I recommend,

    Oxford Oximiser 601 Battery Charger Optimiser UK 12V Maximiser New - SALE | eBay


    Ultra high quality and includes a totally dead battery indicator(My Original Oxford charger is still going strong after 10 years I just wanted another for my garage and SV650).
