My apologies for this stupid question, but how do I determine whether a motor vehicle or bike is negatively or positively grounded?
The reason I'm asking is because in the "instructions" of the battery tender it mentions a particular order to connecting the alligator clamps or eyelets when charging the battery while it's in the bike.
I'm thinking of installing the "eyelets" from my Battery Tender to my bike so that when it's parked, I can have my battery charging. I realize it's not necessary, but there will be periods when I won't be on my ride for a couple weeks at a time due to travel and work. I'm not familiar with this as I usually remove the battery from my bike to charge it over the winter. But I hear that some folks keep the battery at a charge even after a ride during season.
Is this normally a good practice in general though?
