How do you charge the battery on a Harley?

Remove from the mc, disconnecting the ground cable first. Then hook up to a trickle charger at 10% the amp hour rating of the battery. Probably 2 amp. Charge fully, overnight is a good bet. Then load test the battery with an iron type load tester. Any auto parts store will usually do this for you at no charge. If it passes, reinstall battery in the mc reconnecting the ground cable LAST!! Then have fun riding. If the battery doesn't pass the load test, replace the battery new, and follow the previous charging procedure BEFORE you install into the bike. I dont care if it is "new" the battery had surely been sitting around waiting for you to come buy it. Recharge, install and ride away.

How long do you charge a riding lawn mower battery at 12volt 2amp charger?

Charging time varies greatly, dependent on the batteries condition at the beginning of the charge cycle. Most modern battery chargers are automatic and will reduce charge amps as the battery becomes fully charged. If your charger is a manual type, there are two ways to know when the battery has reached its storage capacity. If you have a volt meter, the battery is at full capacity when it reaches 12.6 volts with the charger disconnected from the battery. Alternately, you can purchase a battery tester, very similar to an anti-freeze tester, which checks the specific gravity of the acid in the battery. Those can be purchased at any auto parts store for a couple dollars. You must have a battery with removable cell covers to test the fluid, most all lawn tractor batteries have removable covers. As a side note, ensure each cell has enough "water" to cover the lead plates by 1/4 of an inch or so.
