==Sealed Battery Activation==
First of all only use the acid pack that comes with the battery do not add any additional acid or water. After the acid pack is completely drained you should let the battery sit for 20-60 minutes (high performance batteries 1-2 hours). This allows the electrolyte to permeate into the plates for optimum performance. After the electrolyte is added your battery will have about 75-80% of its potential charge. On new [[motorcycles]] many manufacturers require the battery to be fully charged with the cap off with a deep solid state trickle charger to be eligible for warranty replacement. If you don't have a fancy automatic charger you should refer to any instructions included with the battery and aim to have a voltage of 12.8v after the battery is fully charged .
