Does anybody know how to charge a 4 wheeler battery?
I have a suzuki 250 ozark and the other day the battery was basicly dead. The eletric start wouldnt do nothing and the lights on it were not responding. I had not cranked it for 4 monthes before that so I figured that was what the problem was. I was able to jump it off my truck and it cranked right up. I let it run for an hour and shut it off and it wouldnt refire on it own. So I went and bought a new battery but aparently you cant just buy one of these thing ready to go. So i also had to buy a 1 amp charger.
I get the battery home and it had 2 big bottles of battery acid with it that I had to fill the battery with. I use the first bottle and it filled it up completly. I let it sit for a while and then tryed putting more in it and it would not take it. I put the cap on the battery and connected it to the 1 amp charger.
12 hours later I took it off the charger and into the bike and it was still no good. then I let it sit for 18 hours on the charger and put it into the bike and it had a little energy in it (enough for the neutral light to come on) but would not start the bike. Then I let it sit 24 more hours and basicly it is the same as last time. I pluged it up to the truck and let the truck charge it for 20 minutes and it still wouldnt start the bike up. Then I jumped it off the truck and on the trucks energy it started up. I let it run for well over an hour and shut it off and it still wont start the bike on its own energy.
My question to you guys is what should I do? should I take it out of the bike and see if it will take more acid? Should I leave it charging off the trucks battery for a while or what. I cant figure out why I didnt need this second bottle of acid and sense the directions were generic for every type of battery i cant tell if it is extra or what. PLEASE FELLOW ATer's HELP!!!!!!!!!
