Charging

For initial charging, use the charger specially designed for mf battery.

Caution

  •  for charging the battery, make sure to use the charger specially designed for mf battery. Otherwise, the battery may be overcharged resulting in shortened service life.
  •  Do not remove the cap during charging.
  •  Position the battery with the cap facing upward during charging.

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.
