???

Just picked up 2003 Monster 800ie yesterday ... love the bike. Quite nervous hearing about battery acid leaks. Any suggestions that you can give would be great. Has this issue been resolved? What should I look for or purchase to avoid any problems?

Battery issues were well known in the past not in the latest bikes. I think they changed the battery to have a heavier casin to hold the acids. Stop worrying about the acids.. just start ridin it!! ;)

I put this stuff called "Battery Mat" under and in front of the battery just in case it leaks, it's supposed to absorb and neutralize some of the acid..

it's a yellow felt-like material that can easily be cut to size. I forget where I got it though, I'm sure some search will turn up multiple vendors.

so far (5300) miles with no problems on my '02 620 (knock on wood...)
