So I have purchased a Yuasa motorcycle battery and it'll come dry, with acid pack.

Was wondering if there is any special care I should take while setting it up? Or just pour acid, charge it overnight and then use it.

If any other advice, please feel free to suggest smile

Thank you.

The battery should come with instructions, and it will basically be what you said above.

Should let it sit overnight before use. Once filled, it will be fully charged, a fully discharged battery will only have water in the cells.

All the batteries I have filled had instructions that said to charge the battery @ 1A after filling.

Let me see if I have 1A charger, I think have a 2A one. Or a 0.5A one : https://www.harborfreight.com/automatic-battery-float-charger-69955.html

I gave you a link to the manufacturers step-by-step instructions, in your thread asking about batteries. The battery should also come with instructions, as already stated. But if for some reason the printed instructions are missing, you're set with the linked PDF instructions.

Yes, indeed. Actually looked at a few youtube videos too, think I am all set.

Thanks all.
