Motorbike Battery Interesting Facts
Motorcycle batteries often fail prematurely due to the way in which the motorcycle is used. The most common reasons that contribute to early failure are:
1. The motorcycle stands for long periods of time. The battery discharges resulting in sulphation of the active material on the battery plates.
2. Using the motorcycle for short distances results in the charging system not fully recharging the battery, therefore the battery becomes discharged.
3. Running extra electrical accessories on the motorcycle, causing the battery to drain much quicker.
4. Incorrectly installed accessories and/or wiring.
Whilst in service in a motorcycle, the battery is charged by the motorcycle alternator. Should the battery become discharged after for example a long period of non-use, we recommend that the battery be charged using an external intelligent charger to fully restore state of charge.
