The American Industry is experiencing the return of many a boomer, one is Vintage. Even marques like Ducati and Triumph have stylised their entire range.And while Ducati’s SportClassic and Triumph’s Modern Classic motorcycles are the most prolific examples of the modern vintage niche – they are far from alone. Moto Guzzi has built “classic” models alongside its high-performance Twins, and Royal Enfield survives solely off vintage-inspired units. Even Honda floated a production vintage test balloon when it debuted the ‘80’s-styled CB1100F concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007.The success of the modern vintage niche is hard to argue against, with Triumph’s Parallel Twin-powered Modern Classics, of which the Bonneville is the flagship, a stalwart of the Trumpet line. The expansion of Ducati’s SportClassic line with the GT1000 Touring in 2009 is a clear signal its retro seeds have reaped financial rewards for the Italian marque as well.

Have you ever wondered how your motorcycle battery works? Motorcycle batteries are relatively expensive and small as compared to car batteries. To maintain your battery well, lets get to know how does it actually works!
A motorcycle battery consists of six cell each containing positive & negative plates. The cell has 2 volts each, total providing 12 volts necessary to power your motorcycle.
The lead cells are submersed in sulfuric acids to generate electricity through chemical reaction.Sparked by the starter, the battery allows the engine to start and powers your peripherals–like CBs and satellite radios.
The current is generated when electrons from the battery acid interact with the lead cells. Hydrogen particles from the acid provide the cells with protons while the sulfate ions provide negative electrons.
The residual sulfate begins to cover the battery cells and forms a barrier between the cells and the remaining acid–reducing the ability of acid to charge the cells. The charged cells pour out of the negative terminal of the battery and travel the motorcycle’s circuit, powering the motor and peripherals, and then they return through the positive terminal of the battery.
There are different types of batteries depending upon the motorcycle you riding. You may be riding a traditional motorcycle or a street motorcycle or your classic vintage motorcycle. If you are vintage motorcycle enthusiast and love to go for racing, then here is the braille light weight racing battery, best suitable for your motorcycle.

Just with few tools and basic mechanical proficiency, you can change your motorcycle rims.
Follow these simple tools and get your rims changed:
- Deflate the tire on the wheel that holds the rim you want to change. When the tires are inflated, there is no empty space between the rim and the surface of the tire.
- Use your socket set to loosen and remove any fasteners that physically attach the rim to your motorcycle wheel. Make sure you don’t lose any pieces as you work.
- Place the new rim on the wheel. Depending on the size and style of the rim, there may be overlap between the rim and the tire. If there is, you may have to adjust the tire, so that it rests over or beneath the surface of the rim.
- Fasten the new rim onto the wheel using your socket set if it requires any additional securing.
Remember that it probably won’t cost more than an hour’s labor to have your rims changed by a professional if you’re unsure whether or not you’re up to the task.
