I'm going out of town for a few days, so i figure its a good time to put my battery on my trickle charger. I pull it out and all but one of the cells is almost dry, my bike has been running strong so far. It is a 76 CB200 with less than 2500 miles. I just adjusted the gap on my points to spec, but i did notice some sparking between the points. My buddy suggested i need a new condenser. I would love any advice pertaining to this issue. Thanks in advance...

If the cells are allowed to dry, they won't re-charge, even if you top off the electrolite. I don't know what your condensor has to do with this, if anything. You may want to check for a draw on the battery, maybe from the ignition switch or something. And you may want to check to see if the alternator or regulator/rectifier is overcharging the battery, which could cause your low electrolite. When was the last time the battery was checked?
