Re: Batteries for the BMW K1200 LT
I killed my first BMW battery (probably because I didn't have an optimate and didn't know about the impotence of leaving the bike in the 'locked' position)
Bought an Odessy and and optimate that did the job for ages.
Then I somehow killed the bike (wouldn't start) and the bike went to BMW (one of the last times I trusted them with it)
They replaced the battery with a BMW one and I demanded my Odessy back.
I keep the bike on charge unless touring and have waited for the BMW battery to die, but it has survived me leaving the lights on twice and really draining the battery. The Odessy charges, but never reads fully charged on the optimate.
