voltmeter is more for ur charging system.. wen ur engine is running (say above 2000-3000rpm), ur "alternator/coil/stator/wateva u call it" shud produce at least 13.5v to 14v... a healthy charging system can even produce 14.5v... wen u r riding n somehow suddenly ur voltage drop to like 12.5 or so, means goodbye to ur rectifier or coil or worse even both (no more charging, bike running off the battery charge)... so at least u can buy time to ride to bikeshop and get it fixed.. if not, u end up stranded on the highway wen ur battery gets flat...

voltage is same for all. 12volts. wat u wanna check is the capacity, which is the Ah rating. i tink my ta200 one is rated 4Ah. check wat u Sym requires. and oso the dimension of the battery. if all meets the requirements of the sym, then shud be fine.

The answer is 2 to 4 years. If taken care of, a motorcycle battery can even last for up to 3 years. There are several types of motorcycle batteries. They give different battery life depending on various factors, like maintaining, preserving, installing, etc.

if not well taken care, about 1 year.. 

agreed, diff types of batteries varies, my newer battery only last me 7 months.. =.= 

and i've checked with battery health checker, it's definitely dead (not enough amp) but still can use normal stuff (portable air pump) and etc.. haha..

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

 

Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well. :)
