Yeah just make sure after you use your winch you ride for a while to charge back up the battery.

riding your bike wont charge the battery, it doesnt have a charging system, you have to physicaly hook it up to a charger

sorry, wording could've been better, it doesnt have a charging system quite the same as a car, it just uses a stator that is turned by the crankshaft, but i have had experience with batterys in the winter while useing handwarmers and the winch to lift the plow up and down, by the spring i gotta replace the battery. useing the winch so much draws is hard on the battery i guess
