How to maintain your battery

Most riders won't notice that anything is amiss with their battery until they press the ignition switch and their motorcycle fails to start. With a little bit of luck, they might be able to recharge the battery, but that takes time.

Often overlooked, battery maintenance is simple and, apart from keeping your battery in top working condition, will also significantly extend its lifespan. What's not to like? MSL asked the battery saving experts at OptiMate to explain the theory behind the practice of battery maintenance.

CFMOTO 450 SR S

The past few years have seen a few comebacks that we did not want to see at all. A global plague, rickets, threats of nuclear war in Europe and hyper-inflation, to pick just a few at random.
