CTEK’s top tips for motorcycle battery maintenance.

Battery chargers

Life on two wheels is exhilarating and exciting - just you, your bike, the fresh air and the open road.  The feeling of freedom to explore the most beautiful countryside, where you can truly be at one with nature. But the unexpected could happen at any time, and the last thing you want when you’re in the middle of nowhere, without power and with no help in sight, is a bike that just won’t start. 

This is why it is vital to keep your battery regularly maintained says CTEK, the leading global brand in vehicle charging solutions. Just in time for the Spring weather, CTEK has provided some top battery charging tips for motorcyclists looking to escape without disruption out onto the long, open road this year.   

If you ride your motorcycle on a daily basis, the alternator should be charging the battery while you ride, but if you have kept your bike stored over the winter for weeks or months at a time, you'll need to invest in a good quality and reliable battery charger.    

Charging motorcycle batteries regularly is one way of prolonging their life. You can never be too careful when it comes to choosing the right charger that is compatible with your motorcycle’s battery, and if you are lucky enough to have more than one motorcycle, you will be aware that the charging requirements may not be the same.  Smart chargers such as the CTEK CS ONE makes charging any 12V lead acid or lithium (12V LiFePO4) simple.   

The CS ONE is a revolutionary and powerful battery charger and maintainer with APTO (Adaptive Charging) technology. It has several different recharging and reconditioning programs and delivers a customised charging program for your motorcycle battery. The CS ONE is both simple and smart and you can unlock additional features using the CTEK app.  

Mark Poole, Sales Manager for CTEK said: ”If you want your motorcycle battery to last throughout the season, you have to take care of it. It has to be in good condition if you want to maximise the great weather and head out at short notice on your motorcycle. Batteries usually last three to five years if they are well-maintained.”
