I will check the battery drain test tommorow. i.e. disconnect battery neg and measure current to ground. Manual standard is 2mA or less. Otherwise I have current drain somewhere.
You do have a load on the battery-- it's the clock, and it's a good reason to buy a Battery Tender if you don't ride very frequently.
