    Bought this charger because my other one is on my 700- 80 miles away in storage.

    The battery was at 11.7 volts. The manual says don't use it if under 12v but I figured it was close enough. Left it connected for two days. After that, the battery was at 12.7v and the VFR fired right up after sitting all winter.

    Yep, works and is a good deal.
    The only thing I don't like is it does not have ring connectors to attach to your battery.
    So you have to take off the seat and use the clamps.
    Boo hoo hoo. :High5:

    I stick with real Battery Tenders since a cheap one I bought long time ago fried my battery.

    Battery Tender Jrs are pretty inexpensive.

    Battery Tender is great. I have a 4x on the wall. Not cheep but your bike, mower, tractor, car will start, and the battery will last longer. I got 10 years out of my Victory battery.

    The seat isn't bad to take off ( mine requires a yank) but the battery cover- it's easy to lose the nut and bolt. Think ill put together some quick disconnects
