  • Why are the terminals on the MotoBatt so much smaller looking compared with the original Harley Battery?
    As you know the MotoBatt MBHD12H replaces the Harley Battery Part Number 66007-84 or the Yuasa YHD12. Those old style wet batteries use lead terminals. Lead is a soft material and can bend easily. Therefore the structural design had to be thick to withstand the torque, heat and vibration.The new MotoBatt batteries use copper which can carry the load with far less resistance, has a much higher melting point and will maintain its shape with 90% less material making it the premier choice.
