Charging the Battery

I know there have been lots of thread regarding charging the battery, so forgive me for a new one for the sake of expedient replies from experience riders.

I am going to recharge the battery with a tender this weekend (brutally cold here in North NJ). Leave it in connected or disconnect it before charging?

Thanks in advance.

I've always left mine connected. I have a lead on my bikes so i can just plug the charger to it.

Same here - for all four bikes. Two of them spend winters in central Maine and start as they should in the spring. A good charger/ maintainer is worth its weight in, well, batteries.
