Hi
I have an Optimate 4 trickle charger, would this be ok to use on my Desert Sled? I obviously need an O-47 adapter (rather than connect directly to the battery) to use the factory fitted lead. Do I 'switch' the Optimate to canbus as it is currently in 'standard' mode.
Thanks
JohnyT

I have an old Accumate which is made by the same company. And have a permanent lead attached to my Scrambler, and my classic car, which I bought off ebay. I tend to have the car always attached to the Accumate but give the bike a top up every few months. It usually says it's fully charged after about 10 mins. No canbus feature on this charger and never any problems.

HI
Thanks for the replies. Bought an adapter to use the Optimate 4 through the diagnostic port and is now all set up and trickle charging. Emailed Optimate about which program to set the charger to and they said to keep it in Standard mode as the Canbus program is mainly for the BMW's.
