This battery is designed to sustain no unusual deterioration if refresh-charged according to the method specified above.

Battery

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

NOTE

○To ensure maximum battery life and customer satisfac­tion, it is recommended the battery be load tested at three times its amp-hour rating for 15 seconds. Re-check voltage and if less than 12.8 volts repeat the charging cycle and load test. If still below 12.8 volts, the battery is defective.

Precautions

No need of topping-up No topping-up is necessary in this battery until it ends its life under normal use. Forcibly prying off the seal cap to add water is very dangerous. Never do that.

Refreshing charge If an engine will not start, a horn sounds weak, or lights are dim, it indicates the battery has been discharged. Give refresh charge for 5 to 10 hours with charge current shown in the specification (see Refreshing Charge).

When a fast charge is inevitably required, do it following precisely the maximum charge current and time conditions indicated on the battery.

CAUTION

However, the battery’s performance may be reduced noticeably if charged under condi­tions other than given above. Never remove the seal cap during refresh charge.

3) When you do not use the motorcycle for months:

Give a refresh charge before you store the motorcycle and store it with the negative lead removed. Give a refresh charge once a month during storage.

4) Battery life:

If the battery will not start the engine even after several refresh charges, the battery has exceeded its useful life. Replace it. (Provided, however, the vehicle’s starting system has no problem.)

Keep the battery away from sparks and open flames during charging, since the battery gives off an explosive gas mixture of hydrogen and oxygen. When using a battery charger, connect the battery to the charger before turning on the charger. This procedure prevents sparks at the battery terminals which could ignite any battery gases. No fire should be drawn near the battery, or no terminals should have the tightening loos­ened.
