Motorcycle Batteries are made of of six cells containing positive and negative plates. Each of the cells is usually a little over two volts each, providing the 12 volts necessary to power your motorcycle. The lead cells are submersed in sulfuric acids to generate electricity through chemical reaction.
In addition, motorcycle batteries also serves as a voltage stabilizer, or a large filter, by absorbing unusual transient voltages in the motorcycle's electrical system. Without this protection, certain electrical or electronic components could be damaged by these high voltages.
Motorcycle Batteries should last-on average-two to three years. However, gel batteries will last you five years or longer. Gel batteries have a silica fume compound mixed within the sulfuric acid to reduce spillage, corrosion, and electrolyte evaporation. Consider replacing your motorcycle's battery, especially before the winter months, if you don't remember the last time the battery was replaced.
