    Does the battery need to be removed when using the Battery Tender?

    I was looking over a thread on the Kawasaki board and I'm not sure if it applies the the Yamaha. Can I leave the battery hooked up while on the battery tender? I wanted to do what XL1200Ltd-Keith did in this thread:

    I searched back to 2009 and don't see anything that addresses this.

    Thanks!

    Yes, It will be fine if you leave it in the ski while hooked up to the tender.

    It does not need to be removed. Leave it in the ski. No worries there.

    Cool, is the Tender Junior ok?

    I swear I looked at their site and can't find the application difference between the regular and junior.

    Sure you can leave the battery hooked up with a charger on it but I un hook the ground wire on the ski to the battery for safety reasons. Just to be safe in case something odd should go wrong with the ski or the charger. It only takes .30 seconds to do this / BETER SAFE THAN SORRY! Tommy Jordan

    I was considering an in-line fuse between the tender and the battery for the same reason.

    Thanks. I see your in San Antonio. Man I miss that place. We used to ride at Medina Lake all the time. Great place but my wife would get sick on the trip up to the state park, talk about twists and turns! At least it was close!

    I was looking at the knob style disconnect. Seems kinda big though for such a small battery. Anyone know of a smaller variety?
