Helen's VFR - New Battery

Helen got a new battery from Rochdale Honda yesterday. We decided to get the proper Yuasa battery that Honda fit, as the V4 can be quite demanding on batteries.

Took all of about 5 minutes to change the batteries over, Honda have made it very easy with its easy access location under the seat. Bike started eventually, it did need a good bit of throttle to keep the revs up until the automatic choke kicked in. I’ll have to remember to keep the bikes batteries tickle charged over the winter period on some sort of rotation system.
