How long will my battery last?

That all depends on you my friend! While most batteries can be counted on to last about 3 years when taken care of properly, there is a lot that you can do to change that – you can baby a battery and get 5-6 years out of it, or treat it like crap and kill it before it’s first birthday.

How Long Does A Motorcycle Battery Last And How To Maintain it?

The most common thing that riders do to ruin a battery is let them die completely repeatedly. The nature of a lead-acid battery is such that it becomes permanently damaged and loses part of its charging capacity every time it runs down, and this can only happen a handful of times with these batteries before they are dead for good.

How does this happen? A few of the most common reasons are:

  • Letting a bike sit for long periods of time
  • Only ever riding short distances (this does not allow the bike’s charging system to fully recharge the battery)
  • Running excessive electrical accessories on a bike (these drain the battery much quicker than a stock bike would)
  • Faulty or incorrectly installed accessories or wiring
  • Using the wrong type of charger and over/undercharging

Do I have to fill my battery with acid? How do I do it?

This depends on the type of battery you choose. Here at BikeBandit, you can choose between a conventional battery that comes completely dry that you fill with electrolyte yourself, one that comes with pre-measured acid-filled tubes that you simply pour into the battery when you receive it, or batteries that are filled and the factory and sealed so you never have to deal with a drop of battery acid yourself. Most of our customers opt for maintenance-free batteries that are filled and sealed at the factory, but you can save a few bucks by choosing a battery you fill with acid yourself if you’re comfortable doing it.

More than likely, you have a problem with your motorcycle’s electrical system and not the battery. If you have a voltage tester, you can test the battery to check and see if it has a healthy charge of around 12.7-12.8 volts, but if you are having even new batteries die on you, you should have your charging system diagnosed to see if that is the source of the problem.
