How long does it take to charge a motorcycle battery on a trickle charger?

The 65Ah battery in my car, will take 18.5 hours to charge. On my bike battery charger at 6Amps from completely flat, it will take 11.25 hours to charge 9ah battery. The charger should adjust to a maintenance charge once it's full, assuming it is a half polite charger!

Herein, what voltage should I charge my motorcycle battery?

A healthy 12 volt motorcycle battery should maintain a range from 9.5 - 10.5 volts under the load for a good 30 seconds straight. If the battery begins to hold and then steadily drops in voltage, there is a problem.

How long does it take to charge a motorcycle battery with a battery tender?

To be safe, assume that the batteries require a full 100% charge after the cells are filled. For example, a 16 Ah battery will take about 13 hours to get to the absorption voltage (constant 14.4 Volts). It may take another 6 to 8 hours to reach the float voltage (constant 13.2 Volts).
