TAKE CARE
KEEP THE BATTERY AWAY FROM SPARKS OR NAKED FLA-
MES DURING THE CHARGING PROCESS, SINCE THE BAT-
TERY GIVES OFF AN EXPLOSIVE MIXTURE OF HYDROGEN
AND OXYGEN GASES. WHEN USING A BATTERY CHARGER,
CONNECT THE CHARGER TO THE BATTERY BEFORE PLU-
GGING IT IN. THIS PROCEDURE PREVENTS SPARKS FROM
BEING PRODUCED AT THE BATTERY TERMINALS THAT MAY
IGNITE THE GASES COMING FROM THE BATTERY.
NEVER LIGHT A FIRE NEAR THE BATTERY. THE TERMINALS
MUST NOT BE LOOSE.
THE ELECTROLYTE CONTAINS SULPHURIC ACID. TAKE
GREAT CARE THAT THIS DOES NOT COME INTO CONTACT
WITH THE SKIN OR EYES.
IF IT DOES COME INTO CONTACT WITH THESE, WASH
THE AFFECTED AREA IMMEDIATELY WITH AN ABUNDANT
AMOUNT OF WATER. IF THE CONDITION IS SERIOUS, GET
MEDICAL ATTENTION.
INTERCHANGEABILITY
A BATTERY THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE MAINTENANCE CAN
ONLY GIVE ITS BEST PERFORMANCE IN COMBINATION
WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM OF THE CORRECT MACHI-
NE. THEREFORE ONLY FIT A MAINTENANCE-FREE BATTERY
ON A MOTORCYCLE THAT WAS ORIGINALLY FITTED WITH
A MAINTENANCE-FREE BATTERY.
TAKE CARE, SINCE FITTING A MAINTENANCE-FREE BAT-
TERY ON A MOTORCYCLE WITH A NORMAL BATTERY AS
ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT WILL RESULT IN THE LIFE OF THE
MAINTENANCE-FREE BATTERY BEING SHORTENED.
