85 express battery - diluted sulfuric acid needed?

Just got a new battery from bikebandit for my 85 express. It says to add diluted sufuric acid. What? I thought I needed to add distilled water to a battery. I'm confused. The manual says to add distilled water, and this little book that came with battery says otherwise.

Any ideas?

thanks!

when you get a new battery you have to add acid, you can top off whit distilled water later if needed, which is what the manual is talking about, but a new battery needs acid, why do you think it is called battery acid? its not just distilled water. You can pick some up at a car battery store, it should be pretty cheap, most new batteries come with acid though
