Battery safety rules

Warning

Before carrying out any operations on the battery, keep in mind the safety standards (sect. 1 - 3, General safety rules).

When under charge, batteries produce explosive gases. Keep batteries away from heat sources, sparks or open flames.

Instructions for use

The battery is a sealed, maintenance-free type and therefore requires no servicing installation.

Note

Always keep the battery clean. Apply grease around the battery terminal clamps to prevent corrosion.

Warning

Never remove the valve cover located on top of the cover. If the block, cover or terminals are broken or if the valve cover has been tampered with it is absolutely necessary to replace the battery.

If the motorcycle is left unused for more than 30 days, remove the battery and store it in a safe, cool place.

Always charge the battery before the first operation and after long storage periods - such as before selling the vehicle.
