charging battery

Hey guys,
kinda a noob question so forgive me.
On my first 600 i never once charged the battery and it lasted the entire season before i sold it. My question is do i have to charge my zx10 and if so how frequently

If youre going to let it sit for say, 2 weeks, I would throw it on a tender though. Also, drain time varies depending on parasitic draw you have from something like an alarm or other battery powered devices.

Unless your battery need replacement or won't store the voltage. You can check it by the use of a volt meter.

Same answer as above still. Takes more to start HIDs than halogens, less to keep them on than halogens. Ride it enough and itll be fine. Ive had HIDs for a year and half, no battery issues because of them.
