Motorcycle battery replacement?
Trust the Mob!

A motorcycle battery and a car battery are not to be used interchangeably. Car batteries have a much higher amperage than motorcycle batteries and therefore are not suited to work in motorcycles. Although both batteries are lead-acid batteries and typically 12V, it is never a good idea to substitute one for the other.

Although using a car battery to jump start your motorbike on the side road will get you mobile again – your motorcycle battery will need replacing immediately. Substituting a car’s battery for a motorcycle battery will damage your motorbike’s electrical systems. Never use a car battery in your motorcycle!

When is it time to
replace my motorcycle battery?

Part of your motorcycle maintenance is replacing your motorcycle’s battery when it is dead or insufficiently charging your bike. Best battery replacement practice is to replace your motorcycle’s battery at least every three to five years. This way you can be rest assured your battery won’t give problems for some time to come. This will also depend on how often you use your bike. Motorcycles, such as off-road or dirt bikes which aren’t run weekly may need their batteries replaced sooner than three years.
