How to maintain your vehicle's battery?

  • Updated

Whether your vehicle is equipped with accessories powered by its battery or not, it's important to monitor the state of charge and maintain your vehicle's battery.
(In the case of motorcycles, especially high-performance ones, they are often equipped with 'standard' lead-acid/AGM batteries that are undersized for starting a large 1000cc or larger twin-cylinder engine.)

It is essential to monitor the charge level of your vehicle's battery, especially if it is driven infrequently, both in terms of frequency and distance.

You can do this by using a multimeter to measure the voltage delivered by your battery and compare the measured value with the manufacturer's recommendations (motorcycle or battery user manual).

During periods of inactivity for your vehicle, it is highly advisable to connect the battery to a trickle charger.

The battery's charge level will be kept at its highest, and your accessories (including Flashbird or Pegase Moto!) will continue to be powered without risk and therefore function.
