However, if a battery shows a terminal voltage of 12.6 V or more, using a digital voltmeter, after 10 minutes of filling, no initial charge is necessary. Kawasaki-recommended chargers: OptiMate III Yuasa 1.5 Amp Automatic Charger Battery Mate 150-9 If the above chargers are not available, use equivalent one.
16-26 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM Battery Precautions 1) No need of topping–up No topping–up is necessary in this battery until it ends its life under normal use.
