Battery recharging

Caution

do not remove the caps on the battery top while recharging.

 

Note

when the motorcycle is not used for a long period, check the battery every 1 month to prevent the battery discharge.

  1. Remove the battery from the motorcycle. Refer to battery removal and installation .
  2.  Measure the battery voltage using the multi-circuit tester.

    If the voltage reading is less than the 12 v (dc), recharge the battery with a battery charger.

Recharging time 1.2 A for 5 to 10 hours or 5 a for 1 hour

Caution

be careful not to permit the charging current to exceed 5 a at any time.

  1. After recharging, wait at least 30 minutes and then measure the battery voltage using the multi-circuit tester.

    If the battery voltage is less than 12.5 V, recharge the battery again.

    If the battery voltage is still less than 12.5 V after recharging, replace the battery with a new one.
