Connect one red clamp to the positive terminal of the motorcycle battery. Make sure the clamp does not touch any other metal part. Connect the black clamp to the motorcycle frame (try to choose a point free of paint or chrome to avoid scratches or discoloration). It’s better not to connect directly to the negative terminal as this increases the chance of damaging the battery.

Start the motorcycle. Unless the battery is totally gone, it should start right up. Let it run a few minutes to warm up the motorcycle engine before disconnecting the jumper cables.

Disconnect the jumper cables in the reverse of the order you connected them (Steps 2 and 3). Be careful to keep the clamps from touching anything metal until the cables are fully disconnected. Leave the motorcycle running until you drive it home or to a bike shop to get a new battery or a proper recharge.
