Battery

Hi Folks, does anyone know if with the T`bird parked up ( ignition off ) that anything would slowly discharge the battery ?. for instance if the bike was parked up for say a week would the battery ( good condition of course ) loose its charge due to something on the T`bird using power ?...

The battery should hold for many weeks. I don't use a battery tender during the summer and the only time i've had an issue is when i leave my GPS plugged in.

Crap, the battery goes flat after 2 / 3 days of no use, so something is discharging it, I did notice when I removed the Negative lead that something clicked ( like a relay ) under the tank. the reason for me asking is that the Reg / Rectifier packed up leaving me stranded, cos the battery was discharged ( water in the R / R ) all sorted under warranty, the first indication of this was the ABS light came on, no problem I thought and carried on, but the bike spluttered to a halt..turned out it was nothing to do with the ABS, and I disconned the Battery hoping to clear the ABS, which it didn`t, but I heard this clicking, but went for a ride anyway and then got stranded... Oh well down the dealers again ..
Thanks for getting back Engage..
