I usually get some riding in during winter, but I use the trickle charger if I am off the bike more than a few days, or if it is going to be really cold out.

I just put in a xenon bulb I had lying around from my previous yamaha. much brighter ;D

I Just added this <$17 LED light bulb-- I think its worth it... I wouldn't put it in If I still lived in California though-- it has a blue "ring"-- which those ass-hats would find "illegal"... or at least "Probable Cause" ( see pic attached)

I've just replaced my drive belt with a genuine Yamaha part. At a little over 87,000k's it was squeaking badly and very noisy. It was an easy job, took less than an hour all up. The original belt is in goood condition, but very glazed looking. There  are no nicks, or chips in the old belt, which is surprising considering where I have ridden my Bolt. I'm still really happy with my bike.
