normally a 2 amp PB charger will not hurt an AGM if not left on for extended periods. don't exceed 14.8v when charging AGM.

charge battery out of bike to full .. then allow to rest overnight. AGM should be 12.8v range fully charged. if your bike cranks over with battery 12.8v resting voltage. your battery is fine.

go back a few pages ... there's a Yuasa 900 milliamp charger that's excellent for not much $$$
here is the charger I'm using (i got it from napa).
