800 question but not a member of that board
« on: December 07, 2017, 01:10:11 PM »
On the 800 is there any issues if you take the battery off? I know the 1200 suffers memory loss - trip details not an issue but worried about ecu data. TIA - I'm not a member of the 800 group but the wife has just bought one and u want to fit an optimate  for winter

Exactly the same as the Explorer, i.e. no issue at all. (I have an 800 & an Explorer)

Although I've got an Optimate for when I might need to top-up the batteries, I've never bothered leaving it connected. I've had my bikes garaged for months and they've both started first time. Some members have had issues with batteries when they've had them hooked up to an Optimate for extended periods. The 800 & Explorer both have extremely low battery drain (a few mA) when swithced off, unless you have an alarm or other kit fitted that stays permanently powered.
...Desire ends in satisfaction...

I had an 800 for three years, but then it was only laid up for a couple of months over winter and usually had an odd day out at the weekend, so never had any need to use an Optimate (didn't have an alarm).


I'll never be old enough to know better !
