Most bikers (motor cyclists) replace their old flat battery with the cheapest well known make of battery that they can find. We find that the best sellers are a battery called

Most replacement batteries will come in a dry state and an acid battery pack. The procedure is simple. When the 12 Volt Battery arrives you should check to see if there is any damage or not and that the contents are all in order. If everything is fine, then prepare to fill the battery with the acid. The best place to do this would be outside if possible, just in case you spill any of the acid, you wouldn’t want to ruin your best carpet, would you?. When the motorcycle batteries are filled, you should leave it outside to stand for an hour and the battery should be back to a fully charged state. I always recommend that you should trickle charge the battery, just to make sure, and then fit it to your bike and try it out. Another good point that I should make would be to make sure that you clean all terminals and the place where the battery sits.

It is always important to keep your motorcycle batteries and its carrier clean at all times, giving the correct Motorcycle Battery care, although all the bikes that I have seen have always looked immaculate, so I am sure that the battery is also looked after by the biker. Even a battery that is maintenance free will need some care and cleaning, especially the terminals which by the way should have a smear of Vaseline applied to protect them from the elements, Motorcycle Battery care is most important, for a longer lasting battery.

If you don’t possess a charger I would recommend that you buy one. Most bikers only use their bikes in summer time, so the battery will be unused and not receive any charge during the long winter. Once the battery discharge’s to a certain level, usually below 80% capacity, then it is unlikely to recover, as the plate solution starts to break down and settles to the bottom or the battery acid causing a short circuit. This can be avoided by buying a smart charger and leaving the battery on charge all the winter. When the battery charge starts to drop the charger will kick in and start to re-charge the battery again, it only uses electricity when the battery is being charged, chargers are available from Numax and Ring Electrical and are a great thing to have to prolong the life of your battery, giving the correct Motorcycle Battery care.

This also applies to AGM sealed batteries, they too will need charging throughout the winter or when the bike is not in permanent use.
