Battery Maintenance

The battery should be examined for cleanliness at regular intervals.

  • Read the Safety page.
  • Keep cell terminals and connectors free of dust and corrosion. Terminal corrosion may affect the performance of the battery and could present a safety hazard. Should corrosion be observed, disconnect the battery, unbolt and remove the connectors, and remove the corrosion by brushing the terminals and connectors with a dilute solution of baking soda and water (sodium bicarbonate). Reapply an anti-oxidizing grease before reconnecting and bolting the connectors. Always maintain proper records.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES REMOVE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVES AND NEVER ADD WATER.

Battery Storage

To ensure our batteries safely reach their maximum shelf life, the average annual storage temperature should be 15°C. The short-term storage temperature must not exceed 25°C or battery life may be affected.

Of course, batteries should be sold according to the first-in, first-out principle. To make it easy to check battery age, all Brava branded products are colour coded according to the date of manufacture; see the table we’ve included.

  • READ THE SAFETY SECTION.
  • Remove the battery from the vehicle.
  • Find a cool, dry place to keep your battery.
  • Make sure the battery is fully charged and recharge it approximately every two months.
  • Clean any terminal corrosion may that affect the performance of the battery and could present a safety hazard. Remove the corrosion by brushing the terminals and connectors with a dilute solution of baking soda and water (sodium bicarbonate). Reapply an anti-oxidizing grease before reconnecting and bolting the connectors.

Batteries Maintenance Tips

  1. Check the acid level and top up with distilled wáter.
  2. Keep the battery and terminals clean
  3. Check the cables and connectors for loose connections and check the casing for damage.
  4. Brava batteries come with full usage and maintenance instructions.

Long periods of disuse

Sulphation during long periods of disuse, usually during off-season months, is one of the main causes of motorcycle battery malfunction. Sulphates released as the battery discharges collect on the plates and harden, causing battery performance to suffer or fail completely. That’s why it’s extremely important to observe the following guidelines:

  1. Charge the battery and store it in a dry, clean place. Disconnect the battery’s negative terminal from the motorcycle.
  2. Regularly check the state of charge and recharge if necessary.

Is there preventative maintenance I can do for my battery?

The battery should be examined for cleanliness at regular intervals. Keep cell terminals and connectors free of dust and corrosion. Terminal corrosion may affect the performance of the battery and could present a safety hazard. Should corrosion be observed, disconnect the battery, unbolt and remove the connectors, and remove the corrosion by brushing the terminals and connectors with a dilute solution of baking soda and water (sodium bicarbonate). Reapply an anti-oxidizing grease before reconnecting and bolting the connectors. Always maintain proper records.
