Charge battery while installed in the bike?

2040 6
The manual recommends taking the battery out of the bike before charging. If I want to trickle charge at 2amps, is it necessary to disconnect the battery?
Thanks,

My bike lives on a Battery Tender when not running. I don't remove the battery. I'm not sure about a standard trickle charger. Unless it is a "smart" charger like the Tender that shifts to a float or stand by mode, I'd concerned about over charging the battery. I've not heard of any damage from connecting a charger with the battery still in the bike though.

I think they are referring to the initial charge. Low amp charging is fine on bike.
