    Default proper battery recharging[70cc battery]

    hi salam to all dear members

    i have one very imprtant question.. as u know that the battery of bikes needs to be re charged, and something added to it to maintain the level.. during all my observations at yamaha and honda workshops during tuning my bike ... what they do is just put the normal drinking water from the water cooler into the battery to maintian the level .. is this ok.. ? since i hve heard in the manual to use distiled water?

    and dnt forget to mention how ur battery is recharged and liquid level maintained ?
    thanks

    Distilled water is all that you should use for proper operation and long life of the Battery.

    It comes down to what all the Battery company's recommend and there obviously is a reason why they recommend the use of just Distilled water in Batteries. Now either one can believe what the mechanics/electricians have to say or what the company, choice is pretty much yours to make. What i can tell you is that plain/tap water has minerals in it which can destroy the Battery. Distilled water is widely available at all spare part shops. 10rs for a Bottle which can easily be used several times to top up a below level Battery.

    Wsalam btw

    Yes you could do it at home, just unscrew the battery caps and fill them up with Distilled water till the required level is achieved. There is no scientific reason that suggests placing the battery on any equipment is required, any floor surface will do just fine.

    Edit: Avoid touching the water as it can be harmful to the skin.
