Use specific charger tender even though some lithium batteries that have self balancing circuits claim to work fine with regular tenders without a desulfation mode. Two of my WPS batteries died. The regular tenders never completely charged them.

Just to confirm, did you install a lithium battery or are you assuming it came with one?

It's always a good idea to get a lithium specific charger to maintain proper balance across cells. Some batteries claim they have an internal balance. I've heard mix reviews with these. Contact TJ @RIDERsdisccount. He will give you a great deal.

If you're talking about the new one that is possibly also a 2020...only the race package and M package have lithium batteries I believe.

My V4S came with one but Ducati does not supply a charger (they sell it as an accessory). I'm assuming BMW does the same.

You should confirm if your bike has one first.
