Like most people, you probably take your battery for granted, and expect it to be ready to work 365 days a year. Modern batteries are reliable, low maintenance components, but one thing that they do not like is being left unused for long periods.

During the winter time when your Yamaha is not being ridden regularly, we recommend that you keep the battery topped up with our YEC-50 charger. Developed in close co-operation with CTEK, this intelligent device has a special charge/discharge function that keeps your battery in perfect condition, and the YEC-50 can even help to recover old batteries.

To keep an eye on battery condition you can also buy a ‘Comfort-indicator’ plug that shows battery status, and the charger is supplied with two leads and a socket that allows you to connect to the battery in seconds.
