honda express nc50

My moped has been sitting for a year and the battery does not seem to work, how do I get it to work again? replace acid? trickle charge ?

New battery. Period.

Re: honda express nc50

That^ . And , see if you can find a suitable sealed lead acid (SLA) battery . They last a good amount longer than standard batteries .

Re: honda express nc50

Can you send me a link to some batteries that you may suggest , it seems most of the batteries you have to get the acid separate I just want to buy both together.

NEVER add acid to an old battery, only distilled water if the individual cells are low.

You should have been trickle charging the battery when you weren’t using it. Too late now.(edited)

I'll second that^ .

J M , for an SLA battery , take the dimensions of the original battery :

Battery Details:

Battery Type: 6N2-2A-4

Dimensions: 2 3⁄4 in. x 1 7⁄8 in. x 3 3⁄4 in.

Metric Dimensions: 70mm x 47mm x 96mm

And , find a 6 Volt SLA with similar dimensions . Hopefully , there's a bit of wiggle room in the battery box . I've made considerably bigger batteries 'fit' . ;)

Possibly :

SLA Battery

Typically , an SLA will have a higher amp-hour ( AH ) rating . That's a good thing .

And , the OEM connections will have to be altered to accommodate the SLA connections .(edited)

Re: honda express nc50

Or go to batteries plus and get a battery. you have a store or two in your area.

Re: honda express nc50

can you use the same trickle charger for the SLA as you would use for other batteries ?

Re: honda express nc50

do you need the fuse for SLA?

Re: honda express nc50

Yes to both of your last questions .

Always use a fuse in line . Cheap insurance .

Re: honda express nc50

And 6v battery chargers are free if you're paying attention.
