Harley Davidson Battery Size Chart

Finding a suitable replacement battery can be a challenging task for motorcycle enthusiasts. Unlike car owners who can conveniently contact their local auto parts store and provide vehicle details to get battery information and availability, motorcyclists often find themselves making multiple calls to specialized motorcycle repair shops. Determining the specific battery required is just the beginning; considerations such as materials, cranking amps, capacity (measured in amp hours), and the number of cells in the battery come into play.

To assist you in making an informed decision for your Harley Davidson, we have provided a comprehensive table below. It outlines various replacement battery options and compares them based on materials, voltage, maintenance requirements, cranking amps, and cold-cranking amps. By carefully evaluating these options, you can select the ideal replacement battery that suits your needs.

In modern applications, the majority of motorcycles utilize 12-volt batteries as the norm. However, older motorcycles that rely on 6-volt systems require a compatible 6-volt battery. It is crucial to understand that inserting a 12-volt battery into a 6-volt system can lead to significant damage to your motorcycle’s electronic components. Likewise, if you need to jumpstart a 6-volt motorcycle using a 12-volt system, extreme caution must be exercised to avoid causing irreparable harm to your beloved vehicle.

To determine the voltage of your motorcycle battery at a glance, you can visually inspect the number of stoppers positioned on top of the battery. A 6-volt battery will typically have three stoppers, whereas a 12-volt battery will be equipped with six stoppers.

Understanding the appropriate voltage requirement and ensuring compatibility with your motorcycle’s electrical system is essential for optimal performance and safeguarding the longevity of your vehicle.

Motorcycle batteries are commonly constructed using lead-acid or lithium-iron materials and require an acid electrolyte solution for activation before use. They come in two types: maintenance-free (sealed) and conventional (unsealed). With conventional batteries, it is important to monitor fluid levels periodically to ensure proper functionality. The battery’s cranking amps (CA) determine its ability to start the engine and initiate ignition. Interestingly, although cold-cranking amps (CCA) are available for motorcycle batteries, there is no consistent or reliable industry standard for measuring CCA in powersport batteries due to the variations in engine sizes between motorcycles and cars. Additionally, there are gel-based batteries, which offer a lighter alternative to lead and lithium batteries but are typically more expensive. Explore these diverse options for your motorcycle battery needs.
