Yuasa Battery Life
Written by goldwingman40 on 10/4/2010 at 02:38 pm

Rusty,
If you ride your bike almost every day a good distance, not little short runs,
you do not need to put it on a charger. One important thing is to properly fully
charge your new batteries before you put them into service and don't ever let
your AGM battery set in the discharged state, they never seem to come back.
Batteries of different makes that are "the same" can vary greatly which can
effect the performance and life. I have never used a NAPA battery.

your battery on a charger to extend it's life. Maybe I could have got another
year out of it.

Hi Coasters, I think the battery on my '90 is getting ready to go. Every once in a while, it sounds like it's dead or dying. Then all of a sudden, it comes back to life. I'm watching it pretty closely... Just for grins, I went and
