Biggest chore is running it often enough to keep the carb clean. The pilot jet will plug up easily as it is soooo tiny.
Thanks for the reply

This is actually a Die Hard battery, but I've had to refill it with acid and re-charge it. It seems to be doing well for the most part. This is the first time it's given me any trouble after I refilled it and I have a feeling a bit of water from riding in the rain might have gotten into the wrong place and drained it a bit. I stuck it on the charger and gave it a full charge tonight, so we'll see how it goes tomorrow
