Battery Charger for a K1600 GTL

Any comments on a battery charger for a 2015 K1600GTL? For charging an installed battery, the local BMW dealer recommends getting a BMW trickle charger which uses the bike's "On Board Socket". A concern here is not damaging the CAN-BUS and properly monitoring/charging the battery.

I've been using a "Battery Tender" unit (from my previous Harley Ultra-Classic). No issues to date, but my 2 year old battery isn't holding a charge as long as before. Maybe the charger I'm using?

Don't want to mess up my bike, but also not spend $$ needlessly. Thanks
