Motorcycle Battery Charging-Dont Forget to Charge yours in Winter ?

Important notice

hi there is new regulations about sending out ACID PACKS in the post from 1st of July 2018. So, at the moment we are trying to update all our products that include an acid pack ? We are only a small company so it will take some time to do. At the moment only people collecting batteries can buy a battery with an acid pack. The alternative is to buy an motorcycle AGM battery which are good to be sent out.

I am once again sorry about this but it is now a legal requirement. If we continue to send them out we are in danger of a hefty fine. However we are now looking at a sealing machine and then will be able to send the batteries out with the acid inside. Unfortunately, the sealing equipment would not seal the batteries . Therefore we are still looking for a solution to this problem. Eric Roberts MD

Motorcycle Battery Charging;Your motorcycle battery should not be neglected

This is the time of year that motorbike owners will be storing their motorbikes away for winter. So dont forget about your Motorcycle Battery Charging . Some motorbike riders will opt to carry on riding theirs even in the winter to get to work on. Specially in towns and cities where the roads are gritted and cleared of slush and snow pretty quickly.

In most of the country though bikers will store their bikes and use other forms of transport. Of course, for safety reasons. Also the dark nights come into the equation. It is less safe to ride motor cycles on the long winter dark nights than it is in summertime. Car drivers are the danger here, sometimes they just do not see bikers in the bad light?.

The over whelming number of bikers though. Consequently, store away their motorbikes in the winter period. One very important thing to think about, is what to do with your Motorcycle Battery Charging. Believe it or not thousands of bikers just leave their Motorbike Battery stood over the winter period without any form of charging or maintenance. The bike will generally be stored in a cold shed or garage .

Cold weather has a very large impact on your batteries which can even freeze in a very cold winter, we were amazed a couple of year ago when the temperature dropped to minus 10 degrees just how many car and motorcycle batteries actually froze up. These lead acid batteries failed of course and this is what happens to one that is left un-charged in the winter months.Motorcycle Battery Charging

 How to store your motorcycle battery

 When you store your bike it is best to disconnect your battery and give it a good charge with a small battery charger. Naturally,  a 12 volt 4 amp charger should be good enough for a 12 volt one. You should then check the battery at least once a month. Recharging the battery when possible, also check the acid levels.

By doing this you ensure that when the spring comes and it is time to get the bike out again. Significantly, your bike will start first time and be in a healthy state. It is surprising how many bikers have to buy a new one at the beginning of a new season. Another good gadget now out on the market is an intelligent charger.

This is known as a “connect and forget” these are by “CTEK” and also “NUMAX” and are a good investment to keep your car or Motorcycle Battery Charging in tip top condition whatever the winter throws at us…

Before you take your bike far from home, learn what happened to Sarah.Anytime you take your motorcycle on a trip, you should make sure the battery is in optimum condition. If you have a typical, conventional battery, take a few moments to ensure that fluid levels are adequate before heading out. Remove the caps to see if the cells appear dry; if they are, add clean distilled water. Additionally, look for any signs of terminal corrosion and leaking acid, including tarnished chrome and faded paint.”If you aren’t confident in your ability to service a conventional battery, consider buying a sealed variety. These maintenance-free motorcycle batteries are ideal for people who like riding their bikes but don’t particularly enjoy using Batteries Maintenance Tips and working on them”

Motor cycle batteries? which make or type?

The motorcycle battery market is flooded. Hence, with all sorts of makes and different types of batteries. Thus, it can be very complicated. Of course, I think that the best way to go about buying one of these batteries. Hence, is to keep the job as simple as possible. For this reason, by trying to replace the part number of the battery that you are replacing. So, like for like.

Differing manufactures are not such a problem, except that some motorcycle batteries come with differing part numbers, I was thinking of Varta and perhaps Bosch. A few years ago a European standard battery part number was introduced to try to make all the battery manufacturers use the same number, but this seems to have fallen apart and you can get three different numbers for the same battery.

The most common part numbers are on the Japanese bikes and will look like,”YTX9BS”; this to me is the most common type of battery. The European number found on a Varta will look like “53030”, so the numbers will differ depending where your bike is from. You will find though that most Japanese bikes will have the YTX9BS lettering, but BMW’s will have the 53030 Varta numbers.

In any case you will find it easier if you replace the battery that is fitted to your bike, will be best practice and unless you know what you are doing please don’t try to be clever and update or uprate the battery that you have fitted to the bike.
