I just bought the original bmw battery charger.
The manual says to plug it into the ‘cigarette lighter’ and ...... do not nothing.
The battery charger takes care of everything and will charge and decharge if needed.

My bmw will stay in a heated garage and when the weather is nice, the Beamer is always ready to hit the road.
Hopefully we have a mild and sunny winter !

Don't have any winterisation problems here, but would imagine that inflating the tyres a bit more and potentially getting them off the ground would be important. Apparently batteries discharge at about 1% per day, saw somewhere else that it is advisable to start the motor every 20 or so days to let the battery recharge if no battery tender is used.

The power outlet is an extra right? Didn't find it yet on my bike.

Have an Optimate connectors on the battery and have the charger connected directly. Via the "cigarette lighter" uses the canbus on the more expensive big BMW's, but our G doesn't have that option I think. The BMW chargers (or Optimate) have two programs, one for direct and one for canbus charging, so you have to select the right one...

Yes, the power in / outlet is an extra option
I placed one at the original place (left under the saddle) and use It for the batterij charge.
When I bougt the original BMW I could also choose the optimale which is also very good.

I think our G310has also canbus.
I will look at the settings for the battery charger again (canbus or no canbus !)

Tonnetje, nice bubble.
Where did you get it from.
Is it one that inflates itself every once in a while ?

Tonnetje, I see both wheels are on the ground.
I usually store the bike with the two wheels from the ground.
With no center stand it will be an issue but using the front wheel clamp and a carjack to lift the rear part it can work.

yep the weels are on the ground but its not a big problem i think
my last bike have sitting 18 months on side stand in the garage was 380 kilograms
and no unballance in the tires at all
the tires from the bmw are now 2.5bar for the next 5 months
this bike is half the weight off the harley so thats no problem i guess
the bike buble stays this way until the power from the blower is cutting off

Can’t display mine in the living room either so it’s in the dining room instead!
