    I've just had a thought. ( Doesn't happen that often😂) Will charge the battery then disconect it. Leave it a couple of weeks and check the voltage. That'll eliminate the possibility of the bike draining it.

    Mine goes flat in about 3 weeks. It does however have a tracker. Not sure whether it has done it from new because it was ridden almost daily. Now I donít ride so much I walked into the garage one day, pressed the button, idiot lights but no TFT, battery was almost completely flat. Now itís kept on a trickle charger when not riding. Bike is just under 2.5 years old so will probably fit a new battery next winter.

    With a tracker, they all do that sirÖ

    I just replaced the batteries in both of our bikes as a preventive measure I don't trust batteries much more than two years and our bikes are both 2019s with 15,000 miles.
    I don't know where we are... but I have been lost here before...
