In preparation for the coming riding season I fitted a new battery to the FJ. The old one had packed it in and it's important to have a good battery because it's quite small to spin a big engine and you really don't want to have to enlist strangers to give you a bump start (it's happened)
The FJ has a sealed maintenance free battery. These batteries come "dry" and are filled from an acid pack. After a couple of hours the battery charges itself.
The cells have foil caps
|The pack is pressed onto the battery and this breaks the seals|
|They even supply a pin to puncture the cells to allow them to drain|
|Once filled a cover is fitted to the battery|
I got my battery from batterybayuk on eBay - a good price & fast delivery
