Does My Motorcycle Have a Gel Cell battery?

Except for a few European bikes such as limited BMW and Ducati models, AGM is the standard battery type. In almost all motorcycles that have sealed batteries, that sealed battery is an AGM, not a Gel. In fact, if you were to find a correctly sized Gel battery, it is very likely that using it in your snowmobile, ATV, or motorcycle will lead to early battery failure. more...

Does Starting My Motorcycle in the Winter Charge the Battery?

While starting your bike every few weeks in the winter may be good for the mechanics of it, it could end up harming your battery. Your vehicle's charging system does not truly ramp up until it gets far above idle, sometimes as high as 5000rpm! Unless you hold'er wide open for 10 or 15 minutes, you may not get enough of a charge. You either need to keep it on a decent maintenance charger, such as a Battery Tender, or you need to suck it up and go for a 20+ mile ride every couple weeks! more...

Why Do You Only Sell AGM Powersports Batteries and not Gel Cell Batteries?

Gel batteries are a specific type of sealed battery as are AGM batteries. AGM battery technology has all the positive attributes of the Gel Battery but does not require the special charge profile, thus allowing for easier integration without the added cost of purchasing a special charger.

What Is the Best Battery Charger for my Motorcycle Battery?

That depends on the size and voltage of your battery. For the sake of popularity, we’ll cover 12-volt Sealed Lead Acid Motorcycle and Powersport Batteries. If you have a small battery, under 20 AH(Amp/Hrs), the Battery Tender Junior may be the best choice. If you have a larger battery, you may want to use a slightly higher amp charger in order to not overwork your charger. For those larger Motorcycle / ATV batteries that fall within the 21-30 AH range we recommend the Noco Genius G-1100, or if you really want to prolong your batteries life the Battery Minder 1510 is a great desulfating charger for any powersport battery. more...

What is the difference between Yuasa and Motocross batteries?

Not much really. Motocross is manufactured in the same factory, the same assembly process, at the same time as the Yuasa. The only difference is the label applied at the end of the manufacturing process. For a more in-depth comparison between the two, check out our Guilty As Charged Blog post: Motocross vs Yuasa. more...
