       * The MoCo advised to use sulfuric acid with a specific gravity of 1.270-1.280 for activating new batteries instead of automotive grade acid with 1.255-1.265 specific gravity due to motorcycle batteries being smaller in size than automotive batteries. The higher specific gravity will increase battery amperage output up to 20%. Also, the ball type hydrometers are not as accurate as the Kent Moore type (HD-96910-35). It is not recommended to add this higher specific gravity acid to batteries already in use.
