With proper battery maintenance, your motorcycle battery should last 3-5 years. What are some of the things you can do to help maintain a full life for you battery?
The first thing you should do is get the fluid refilled every once in a while. Most bike batteries are easily accessible, usually located under you seat, or on the side of your bike. Each cell of the battery will tell you where the maximum and minimum levels of fluid are.
You should also remove the battery from the bike when you’re not using it; so during the winter and cold months, remove the battery. Be sure to store the battery out of the cold and into a warm place.
Be sure to charge the battery while it is in storage; even when it is in storage, the battery is discharging. The way to help maintain a longer battery life is to periodically charge it while in storage.
We hope these tips help your motorcycle’s battery live a full life! If your battery is dead, maybe it lasted the full five years, or maybe you didn’t you didn’t maintain it as well as you should, whatever the case, Batteries Unlimited has a full selection of Motorcycle Batteries!
