Your tender seems to be damaging your batteries.

Both my Bikes on Yuasa batteries has been left un-tendered since mid September.
And both start just fine with charge on battery.
(Both are stored in a heated garage)

I have found that leaving a Battery Tender connected all winter will result in significant loss of electrolyte. At the same time, not keeping my batteries charged also kills them.

What I do is connect my battery tender to my various batteries on the first of every month. When the Battery Tender reaches float mode, usually no more than one day, I move it to the next battery. When all have been charged, I disconnect and wait for the next month.

Problem solved.
