Dose this battery need to be charged before the installation?
Jack on Aug 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question. The battery is charged at the factory, but as a rule of thumb it is always a good idea to trickle charge the battery before installation to guarantee that it is fully charged.

Great battery
Worked great all season. My Katana has the ability to boil batteries dry and I had no issues this season even riding 8-10 hours at a time. Battery mounting posts did not match my cables and I hade to modify them to make them fit. Otherwise, great deal!

Would you recommend
Mostly Good
Only complaint I had about this battery is the fact that the posts are on the opposite sides as my cables which meant that i had to get some cable extenders. Not a huge problem and it may only be a problem for my machine (1982 Kawasaki Spectre 750)
