starting while charging battery

I was wondering if I can start my teryx while its charging the battery, I have a battery tender for charging the battery.
Thanks for your time.

Battery tender doesn't put out a lot, but I have heard that it is not good to have 2 sources charging the batteries at one time such as a regular charger and the teryx stator at the same time.

09 teryx- msd ignition - water impellar - half windsheild - uni filter - standard muzzy - sdr rear bumper - hid lights - dalton clutch- water temp guage - ss108 14 inch with terra cross - dasa kebc block off plate - brake alarm buzzer - over drive plate -ssv works sound system -removable canvas top-odyssey battery- rock sliders

I always pulled the charger off once it started.

It will make no difference to your machine as 12volts is all it sees...

How ever, there is one caveat...

If your battery is quite discharged and you attempt to start while charging, you may place too much draw on the charger and the charger itself may have a meltdown or blow an overload fuse.
