Battery electrolyte:

The battery is behind the right side cover. Remove the right side cover. Check the electrolyte level with the motorcycle in an upright position on level ground.

  • When checking the battery electrolyte level, or adding distilled water, make sure the breather tube is connected to the battery breatheroutlet.
  • Use only distilled water in the battery. Tap water will shorten the service life of the battery.
  • Filling the battery above the UPPER LEVEL line may cause the electrolyte to overflow, resulting in corrosion to engine or nearby parts. Immediately wash off any spilled electrolyte.
  • The battery breather tube must be routed as shown on the label. Do not bend or twist the breather tube. A bent or kinked breather tube may pressurize the battery and damage its case.
