One peice of advice is to always have a good battery andhave it at full charge, dead battery=dead sled and i know that from experience.i think you will enjoy the sled alot remember being a cat one ups you on the other brands.
Unless you're a cronic wrench that needs to tinker, you'll love the EFI. Yes, the battery is critical but if it's fully charged and in good shape when you install it in the fall, you won't have any problems. The 700 is a good, strong motor but as mentioned, it eats clutches. 1000-1500 miles is about all I ever got out of my clutch.
I just read an article in one of the mags that reviewed a devise like that. It keeps the battery fresh during inactivity.
I agree it looks like it would be a good thing to invest in and wouldn't take long to pay for its self.
The reason you'll want the battery tender is because the battery is only charged wheb the motor is running. So an electrical draw will draw power and if you do a long mid speed cruise the battery can't charge fully sometimes. They are not much money like 20-40 bucks. You'll be very glad that you did. It also keeps the battery healthy which makes it last longer.
