Motorbike batteries for power and reliability you can trust.
A motorbike that won’t start or just isn’t powering as it should is likely to be telling you that it’s time for a new battery. The sound of nothing happening when the engine won’t even turn over is the stuff of nightmares for bikers who rely on their machines to get them there, so don’t leave it too late to buy your new motorbike battery.
First, the science bit… A 12-volt battery comprises six cells in the plastic case with each cell representing a set of positive and negative plates in electrolyte - a dilute sulphuric acid solution. When fully charged, each cell will hold about 2.1 volts, meaning a fully charged battery will produce a total of around 12.6 volts. The current is produced by the chemical reaction on the plate surface; a heavy flow will reduce the electrolyte to water while a small flow from, say, a couple of small lamps will mean the acid isn’t depleted as quickly – and that’s why a short rest will sometimes be enough to get your bike turning over again. Unfortunately, the downside of lead acid batteries is that, if they’re not used, they’ll discharge themselves completely; drawing power from just a clock, for example, could discharge your battery by 50 percent in two weeks if you leave your bike unridden.
