1988 R100GS - Battery drain issue.


New Member
Hello All

I understood from the BMW mechanic team in NY that this bike model need to driven often if I want to keep the battery from draining... I am not driving that much (as I should) and the battery do get low on power to a state of no engine start...

Is there a device I can place to this bike to make it up to a modern bike behavior? And if not, what type of light battery charger will work for this aged bike?
