Cheap load test.

Starting Load Test
• Adjust voltmeter to DC volts (20 volt range).
• Place voltmeter leads to the battery terminals. (positive to positive and negative to negative)
• Watch the voltmeter as you start your motorcycle.
• If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery has very low capacity and should be replaced.
