Hi guys, being new to this iv read about storing batteries for prolonged periods but just wondered because of the weather iv been unable to use my bike for a while.
With my battery fully charged how long can it go without use before any degradation or damage might occur?
Many thanks.

Just the once won't do much harm but doing it repeatedly will shorten its life.

You can make a battery discharger with 3 x 12v car lamps wired in series and bring the battery down to 38.5v (storage voltage).

Don't store it fully-charged. Run it down a bit first - not right down.
