Tips and Tricks | Stay Cool in the Hot Summer Sun

Posted on July 6, 2011
Is it just me, or is it hot outside? Remember, motorcycle and ATV batteries can be damaged by extreme heat.

Do not use tap water as this contains debris and elements that will ruin the chemistry of the electroylte. Be safe. Ride well. And remember to have a great summer! read more...

Battery Myth | How Much Does it Cost to Maintain a Motorcycle Battery?

Posted on March 7, 2012
It's time to be honest. Companies and experts will tell you that it's a good idea to keep your motorcycle battery on a trickle charger/maintainer. They'll claim, accurately so, how it will extend the life of your motorcycle, ATV, or other powersports battery. This is especially important to consider this practice if you let your big boy toys sit in storage during the winter months or off-season. But somehow or another, nobody ever mentions the cost involved in battery maintenance. Is it really worth it? Can't I just buy a cheap battery every 1-2 years instead of purchasing *gasp* a battery charger? read more...

How to Tell if Your Battery is Bad in 3 Easy Steps

Posted on June 5, 2012
Having battery troubles? Yeah, we hear you. Almost everyday, we receive calls and comments about batteries that "won't hold a charge" any more. Maybe you've been in that boat before.
