I'm one week into working on a 62 Honda Dream CA77. I'm new to this so a question has popped up.
I bought a new battery online that is identical to the one that was in it (clear plastic with blue top, rectangular and thin). It didn't come with acid so I bought some from local auto parts store. Can I add this directly to the battery or does it need to be diluted with distilled water. If so, is there a ratio for a new battery like this one?

Tried to upload a photo of battery but site wont let me.

Add the acid full strength to the battery. When the electrolyte levels are low, top off with distilled water. Don't forget to charge the new battery before trying to start the bike.
