I would like your help to solve a non-RC problem. I have a Honda CRF 450X motorcycle, which has a 6A 12V lead battery that I want to replace (Yuasa YTZ7S).
The original battery specs:
Dimensions: 4.4375" x 2.75" x 4.125"
Weight: 4.6 lbs.
Metric Dimensions: 113mm x 70mm x 105mm
Metric Weight: 2.1 kg
Acid Volume: N/A
The battery should be light, resistent to shock, powerful, not ignite in contact with water and capable of being charged by the original system.
I was thinking about o use 6 packs of these:
1- Do you think it can be charged without problem with the original system?
2- Do you have a better alternative?
Thanks for your help,
Hi, The Motorcycles Charging System is not designed to Charge Ni-MH Batteries, also the Ni-MH battery packs cannot deliver enough amps to start the engine with the electric starter, Good idea, but no go, use the original lead acid or a gel cell battery designed for you Bike, and that will keep you out of Electrical Problems, Take care and have fun, Chellie
