dumb battery question

Recommended Posts

so i got my new battery for my DRZs (motoworld or something - the one that rocky mtn atv sells), and i put the elctrolytes in and sealed it. the instructions don't say anything else. in the past, i've put a new battery on a charger for 24 hours before using it - is this correct? what's the best way to ensure it has a full charge at first and ensures long life?

Yes - charge it. 24 hr on low charge. I charge to a terminal voltage of 16 volts for the initial charge. Let sit for 1 hr no load. No load voltage should be above 13 volts.
