Hey, I know this is the Aero forum, but if anyone out there has or knows about the ACE, this is just a basic question about battery charging.
I have a 2000 Shadow ACE 1100T (as well as a 2004 Aero 750), and I'm pretty sure the battery is dead (but it's only been 2 or 3 wks since I've started her). The guy who sold me the bike also threw in the battery charger. Now I can access the battery directly from the leftside cover, no seat removal needed. Should I take the battery all the way out of the bike in order to hook up the charger, or just disconnect the batt cables and hook up the charger.
Also, the charger only has 2 cords itself, a plugin to the wall outlet, and one for the battery, so I want to hook that one up to the positive, correct? Do I to ground he negative at all while charging?
I'll admit I have barely a basic knowledge of electrical stuff, so I don't wanna screw up anything and zap out any systems.
Thanks for your responses!
