No. No, no, no, no. My roommate once strapped a car battery onto his 750cc 4-cyl motorcycle b/c he was stranded and that’s all he could buy. It started spewing acid out of the top, all over his back and his seat. He burned his b@lls. With sulfuric acid. I wouldn’t recommend it.

  1. You should use the type / size battery recommended for your bike. Use others at your own peril. To answer your questions in order: No, depends, also depends, dunno depends, don’t do it, yes.
