Open request to anyone actually measure key off parasitic draw! I have lots of "it went months" but no one seems to have actually measured anything! Lets add to the collective.

Please add model year for comparison.

One of the things quite clear in my research is that amp hours are NOT the be all and end all. Different batteries have different reactions to low load draw. Many actually exceed the rated draw. Then the reserve ability kicks in, oh, and the actual bike starter draw!

I have done a carb balance changed to lighter weight oil and have the noted issues at 28f. Being an Engineer give me DATA!

Bikes are like women. What you think you want, and what you want, change after the first ride.
