For all of you former two-stroke riders who now have a four-stroke parked in the garage, ask yourself this; do you have a smart charger attached to the battery of your sled, right now at this moment? Or, do you attach a smart charger every month or so to keep the battery from sulfating?

Most snowmobile owners should be familiar with proper battery service during periods of non-use as most lawn and garden tractors, boats and motorcycles sit for months just like sleds do. The easiest thing to do is hook up a smart charger and walk away. The “smart” function will keep the battery fresh and ready to go when you are.

There are now several types of smart trickle chargers offered. We’ve been using two different types recommended by the Yamaha service department as having been testing on their products; the Battery Tender Junior (good) and the Optimate (better), both available through any authorized Yamaha dealer.
