Hi,

I'm now the proud owner of a K1300S and because it has an alarm I'm looking at getting an Optimate to prevent the battery from going flat. Having done some research the Optimate 4 is recommended for BMWs.

Will any Optimate work or do I have to go for the Optimate 4? Wasn't sure as some refer to Can-bus which is all new to me and I wouldn't even know if my BMW had it! I'm not mechanically minded and don't mind admitting it.

Thanks in advance for any help / suggestions.

Nick

I suggest not charging through the Canbus. Just hook up the charge cable to the battery as if it was a regular motorcycle and use any battery maintainer you want.
