Have a new Yausa battery being delivered today. Have an 03 1800C. Will this battery require charging before use? I have left them a vm, used tech portal, an read all on there site. No reply to any?? I got the one with 310 CCA.. Bike has been down since last Sunday. Horrible customer service, as that's my business also..
I just bought a new Yuasa AGM from Summit Racing. Two sets of instructions from Yuasa..
It is dry, so I added the acid, let it soak for a few hours, sealed the cell then put a low charge rate on it.
I had 0.4 amps charge current about 30 minutes after charging began.
After 12 hours I removed the charger, left the house for a few days.
When I returned I put the charger back on for another 12 hours.
My charger has the output voltage set to 14.3 volts. with a maximum current of 1.5 amps.
If you get a pre-filled battery put it on a low charge rate.
6 hours at 1 amp is better than 6 amps at 1 hour>> less heat and gas produced.
If you have an unregulated battery charger, put a voltmeter on the battery, keep it below 14.5 volts.
I took mine to Advanced Auto and the guy checked it and meter said was dead and bought one there for $88. It was agm... forgot the brand.
Took it home, superglued the bolt terminals before screwing them in, and fired it up.
Every AGM battery I've ever purchased required filling the cells with acid, then a slow charge. Most likely it will come with instructions.
Bad battery was issue. Bike running fine with new Yuasa AGM battery. The Interstate battery was only 2 yo an on a tender when not used.. Apparently a cell died as bike had 0 power after riding then getting gas an poof, nothing.
I have no accessories to draw on system..
