New Battery: Fill with water??

I just got a new battery for my Suzuki FA50. It says to fill with some electrolyte, but says to refill with distilled water. Can I just fill it initially with distilled water? Thanks.

absolutely not. You must fill it with the correct battery acid. Take it to your local motorcycle shop and they should be able to fill it for you.

you only add distilled water if the battery has lost some acid over time.i would go to an auto parts store and just buy the acid instead of useing water.

yea if a bettery is weak or dried out, then distilled water tends to work somewhat well, we have had to do it on my old trailer before..
