Default New battery

I just got a new battery for my Sportster. It came with no instructions. I have put it to charge overnight on a 2 amp charge. Is that the right thing to do?

Yes good idea to charge it. Who knows what charge it had sitting on the shelf for months. It will help your charging system work less initially trying to charge it on the bike.
