    Brand new battery dead after 1 week after 5 minute ride

    ok, I have an F2, fried the regulator and just replaced it along with the battery. Charged the battery and took bike out for a test run and it ran great. Parked it and a week later went to start it and i get nothing. not even a click click click. Just dims the headlight. What could cause a constant draw on the battery. I have looked for split wires and have not found any. Has anyone else encountered this type of situation.

    Put the battery on a battery tender or other motorcycle specific charger and make sure it is fully charged then see if it does it again. I think the battery needs a good full charge.

    the battery was fully charged. I checked the voltage before I installed it. I had an issue last year where I could ride the bike for a while but then the battery would die until the bike sat overnight. My regulator was fried so I replaced that with the battery. Im trying to find the underlying problem that is draining my battery before I take it in and pay lots of $$$$$$$$ for them to assess the problem. Didnt know if constant battery drain was a clue for anyone.

    I installed a Scorpio alarm a few months ago ALONG with a new battery which was fully charged and when the bike is sitting - was connected to a Battery Tender Jr. trickle charger -If I remove my bike from the charger the night before a ride, it's 50-50 on whether it will start the next morning or not. Does the alarm take up THAT much juice when NOT active?

    You're sure you don't have ANY wiring that is touching the frame or anything like that? What about your fuses? Could you have a loose fuse?

    Stupid question, but it has happened on this site more than once. Is the bike in neutral? I have seen several guys have to come back with their heads hanging, kicking themselves because the bike was in gear with the kickstand down. I'm not saying that you don't know how to start your bike, but this happens more than you think.

    I used to have an F4 with a wire that was touching somewhere. NEver did find it, but whenever I parked the bike on concrete, as in my garage, the battery would go completely dead after about two days of not running it. I wound up putting a new rubber "shoe" thing on the bottom of my kickstand and it stopped doint it. Maybe its a wire touching on yours?

    Short somewhere also check the voltage when its running, maybe a bad stator, those short sometimes. An easy way to check it to have your high beams on at night and rev your engine, the lights will be dimmer at idle and brighten when you have given it gas.
