I noticed yesterday that when I parked on clean cement that there was a couple acid drips.Rode it again then placed a paper plate under it and it dripped again.Not much just a drop or two.
Is this normal or is there a problem?
I keep the bike on a Tender and the volt meter when running never gets over 14.2 volts.

With a sealed battery no way is it normal. You need to get the battery out and neutralize the battery acid if it is on any thing on your bike fast. The acid will not stop corroding metal parts until completely neutralized the foaming acid spray is the best for detection as it changes color with contact.

Place star type lock washers under the battery bolts. Those bolts have a tendency to loosen, so check them often.

Something I am not seeing here. How do you know it was battery acid? Could it be a weeping of oil fm somewhere?

Acid tastes different from oil
