Like a car, a motorcycle needs a battery to turn the engine over. Without a motorcycle battery you can expect your ride to sit in the garage. Generally, you can find the battery underneath the seat on your motorcycle for quick and easy access. And, like a car, a motorcycle battery requires some upkeep but eventually no longer holds a charge meaning you need to replace it.
Visually inspect your motorcycle battery once a month to ensure the electrolyte cells have enough water if not sealed. Check for loose connection fittings and any rust. Use a stiff brush to wipe away any debris or build-up. If your motorcycle battery leaks, replace it immediately.
Lithium motorcycle batteries offer a lighter alternative to a standard motorcycle battery and hold their charge better in cold weather. A lithium motorcycle battery usually offers more cranking amps, too. You can expect to pay a bit more for a lithium battery but they last longer and don't lose their charge as quickly.
Owning a motorcycle requires preparation and taking care of maintenance therefore a must-have for all riders is a motorcycle battery charger. It’s almost inevitable – you will at one time or another be faced with a dead battery. It could be a minor inconvenience if you discover it at home or a major disruption if you have just checked out of your hotel room. Additionally, if you ride seasonally a battery tender or trickle charge is needed to prevent your motorcycle battery from draining which can reduce its overall life. A batter tender or trickle charger hooks to the battery and keeps it charged during long periods of inactivity. If you own a lithium motorcycle battery you need a lithium battery charger. Do not use a regular motorcycle battery charger on a lithium battery. We carry some of the most popular battery chargers:
