No! Those minerals will break the battery. It has to be distilled water.

I just put a brand new battey in my 95 katana but it still.loses power and dies and wont start


Sounds like your regulator/rectifier has failed. This is a fairly common fault on GS and GSX models, particularly the smaller capacity (below 750cc) models. Did the oil level fall below minimum at any time, because this can cause the generator on some models to overheat, causing a power surge which can burn out the regulator. Get the generator checked and fit a new regulator/rectifier.

MOTORCYCLE BATTERY DRAIN


Although rebranded, the OEM battery for most Japanese motorcycles is Yuasa. There are some maintenance free batteries for MCs now available. Maintenance free batteries do not have the clear plastic PVC hose lines. Batteries last about 4 years... when in doubt, replace it. Check your battery either under the seat or accessible from the plastic side fairing to see if it has a hose nipple on the battery. If it doesn't then the battery is a maintenance free type. If it has a hose nipple, buy a new clear plastic PVC hose from a service station (usually used for car windshield washers) or (better) pet shop (used for aquariums) and run a length down the frame until its clear of metal so the battery water can drip onto the pavement. Cable ties work great at securing it as you don't want the liquid dripping on anything except the ground.

I have a 1980 Suzuki GS750L. I left the brake light on over night and as a result the battery is dead. I jumped the bike with my car battery. (The car wasn't running) The bike started and I rode it...


Yes, yes, and no, and I don't know. You could have blown a fuse, but it seems it would be showing other symptoms if you did. THe age of the battery is a good indication of condition, over one year old, suspect, over 2 years old, definitely could be in need of replacement. Check the water in the battery and fill it to the level with bottled water, or rain water, no minerals, then get one of those floaty ball testers and check the electrolyte fluid weight, One dead cell, the battery is shot. Could have been not enough time to charge it back it up. A battery charger needs to run all night. So, check it out, hope this helps.

My bike does not keep its charge when i am not using it


If the bike won't hold a charge.. The most common problem is usually the simplest. The battery. check your battery properly. Just because a battery reads 12 VDC when you stick the volt meter on it, doesn't mean that is functioning correctly. So…be sure the electrolyte (the water/acid mix) in your battery is between the lines or marks on the battery in all of the cells. If it's low, pop off the cap(s) and fill it towards the top of the area with DEIONIZED or DISTILLED water (most tap water contains minerals that will reduce the effectiveness of the battery). Now that you've topped it off, try recharging the battery overnight with a trickle charger. You'll want to charge it in the garage (or outside) and be sure to put a board or something else under it, in case some of the (very) acidic electrolyte boils over during charging.
If you have the luxury of owning or having access to a "load tester", you can see if the battery holds its voltage level with a load applied.
Ok, so your recharging didn't work. See if it'll let you jump-start it (if you choose not to read my explanation on jump starting - please BE CAREFUL when jumping to do it correctly!!!). If your problem is just the alternator or the battery, jumping should work.

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Battery problem


Tip: Check the fluid levels on each chamber. If any chamber is low, carefully top it up. Use only distilled or deionized water, NOT tap water. Tap water has minerals in it that will not do the battery any good.
The humble battery is a very common cause for motorcycle breakdowns! Unfortunately they are awkward to get to and therefore do not get checked as often as they should.
A battery only requires a little monthly maintenance to perform perfectly. Keep the battery charged to 100%, recharging when the lights dim, the starter sounds weak, or the battery hasn't been used in more than two weeks. Other than that, follow this simple check list every month:
- Check the electrolyte level
- Top up only with distilled or deionized water, wear gloves and protective glasses. Top up in a well ventilated area, Beware of fumes.
- Keep the top free of grime
- Check cables, clamps, and case for obvious damage or loose connections
- Clean terminals and connectors as necessary
- Check inside for excessive sediment, sulfation or mossing
- Make sure the exhaust tube is free of kinks and clogs
- Replace caps firmly
- Finish up by testing the battery with either a hydrometer or voltmeter. To extend the service life of your battery, make monthly battery maintenance part of your routine.
Use only distilled or deionized water, NOT tap water. Tap water has minerals in it that will not do the battery any good.
Storage can be hard on batteries. In fact, non-use can leave them unable to hold a charge.
Store your bike in a place that is always warmer than 32 degrees. If your bike is outside remove the battery from your bike and store it in a location that is always warmer than 32 degrees. This will insure that your battery does not freeze and crack.

If you remove the battery from your bike DO NOT store it on a concrete or metal surface, place the battery on a wood or other non-conductive surface. Batteries stored on concrete or metal will discharge over time.

Place a charger on your battery. Trickle charge your battery at least once a month. A battery that is fully charged will have a longer life and is less likely to freeze during cold winter weather.

Battery Maintenance


Follow these guidelines every three to six months to extend the life of your low-maintenance Interstate battery: 1) Maintain Water Level. If your battery has removable vent caps, you should regularly check the water level and add water when it is low. 2) Keep Terminals Clean. Visually inspect the terminals and cables at least once a year, especially in hot temperatures, for signs of corrosion. If dirty or corroded, clean the connections with a scraper and wire brush. This will ensure a good connection and proper starting. 3) Keep Case Clean. Keep the top of the battery clean of heavy dirt and oil with a cloth dampened by ammonia or a 50/50 solution of baking soda and water. Then rinse with clear water and allow to thoroughly dry. 4) Keep Battery Charged. If your vehicle is not driven weekly, it may be necessary to charge your battery before use. Lack of use is hard on a battery, especially an automotive battery which is designed to be charged regularly by an alternator. Any unused battery, regardless of its chemistry, will self-discharge over time and, if allowed to remain discharged, will undergo severe positive grid corrosion and battery failure. The rate of discharge depends on the type of battery and the storage temperature. So, it's important to keep your battery charged. If you prefer that your mechanic take care of your battery, be sure to ask him to maintain the water level and to keep the connections and case clean of corrosion and dirt.

Change the battery


Th battey on these suck! It is located underneathe the bike in the center. There is 1 bolt on each side you need to take off. Then while holding the cover whicj is on a hinge, open it slowly and the battery should come straight down. ( Hint,,, I pull my back tire on a 2 x 6 to raise the bike up a little. ) now you can access the battery cable bolts. Take then both out being carful not to short the red/positve against anything when moving the battery around trying to get to the bolts. Assemle the same way.
