Re: Drained battery a little during Brake flush.
I ran a Sears Diehard lawn tractor battery in my '85 K100RT for nearly 10 years. Of the two LT's, battery life has only been 3-5 years. Bought the current battery in 2012, so I won't be surprised when it dies. It seems to be fine as I have accidentally left the ignition on twice in the past month and drained it completely. It has charged right back up. I rarely use a charger but ride 50-100 miles several days a week, best way to maintain the battery IMHO.
