Hi Guys, newbie here. Just got my XB-600 last week, and had some small problems while installing (especially the mirrors... I have yet to buy plumbers tape and apply those on to the screws).
One main issue I had was with the charger - the first time I charged the batteries (not thru the seat plug but thru the battery casing) for 12+ hours and the indicator was still red, but the batteries were so hot. After putting the batteries in, the battery meter went off the roof pass "H".
I've searched the forum and seems like some ppl had their batteries explode, or had short battery life... So what's the correct way of charging? The manual says charge after each use. Given that my charger doesn't indicate when it's full (does yours?), I can only second guess and charge about 4 hours after a light ride, and 8 hours after a long, 10+ miles one. After reading the post about batteries exploding, I'm definitely not going to charge it overnight now...
