So a load test will give you an accurate picture of your battery. Free a most auto parts stores.

Your volt meter tells the voltage of your battery. But it does not tell anything about the condition of your battery. Just because it reads 12 plus volts does not mean your battery is in good shape. It does not mean your battery can start your bike. Think of that full charge as a QUANTITY rather tha...
