Anyone reccomend a good battery charger/tender?

I need a new decent battery charger for my wifes Warrior. Any good low cost recomendations? I would like one that also keeps a maintenance charge, as my wife rides it only about once a month.

I just got a battery tender plus for xmas. I believe that is just what you are looking for. Comes with a pigtail that attaches to your battery that you can tuck out of the way, but easily connect to the battery tender. That way you don't have to pull the cover off the battery to hook up. Maintains a float charge, so it isn't a constant trickle charge. It senses battery voltage so it doesnt' over charge.

I have had a Battery Tender since getting my DRZ 3 years ago. It works great - as advertised. I'm happy with it. Shop around as prices varied alot for the same model.

I have the battery tender jr. and it works well. I also hooked up the battery with the quick disconnect, which lets me plug in and out with out unbolting the battery side panel.

There are tons of 'em for sale on Ebay.

Get the Yuasa 900mA one from under $30....cheapest place around. Hard wire it in. Use the charger cord to run GPS, heated clothes or whatever. Smokin deal!!

I'm telling you guys.. $16.95 Walmart special does the job just as good as those costing twice or three times as much. Comes with two pigtails too so you can keep them on the bike(s) and not have to remove so much body work to get to the batteries..

I got a $28 charger from Home Cheapo, works great!! :)

Thanks guys good info :) Paul Maust is helping me root out the electrical short in the next few weeks. My wife will be very happy to have a quad that starts all the time :D

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
