Brutale battery problems??? : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

Has anyone had any problems with their batteries leaking on their Brutales? My first battery had a leak around the 'sealed' joint between the upper and lower halves. The second battery does not leak as much, but some on occasion. Anyone else with this problem?

As there are never any type of puddles under my Brutale in the morning I would assume that neither my battery nor any other part of my bike is leaking.

Hi Edward,

The first Brutale to arrive at my dealer last year was back in at ~800mi with a leaking battery. Discoloured the swingarm but not much damage. My mechanic fashioned a catch tray and then I rebuilt my battery tray the same and also used some acid absorbing mat that they sell to place with batteries. No trouble for my F4 thus far.
