    Okay so the tdub has been parked in the garage for a couple months and I have not had a chance to ride her. I went out to start her up today and NO GO. No battery at all. I pulled the battery and it is bone dry. It has been Very hot here and it has been just sitting. I guess the water evaporated?? The level is so low that I can not even get a reading and from what I can tell it is completely emptied but I can't see where that would be possible. Anyway does anyone think that this can be salvaged? Should I fill it with distilled water and hook it up to the trickle charger or just toss it and buy a new one?



    Thanks

    No harm in trying to recover it; just be prepared to purchase a new one.



    Acid levels need to be checked periodically on these TWs. In fact, I think I'll do that now!

    You could try that if your not in a hurry to go riding, but I would just spring for a new battery and go riding.
