I took her to the dealership - hollywood honda, kawi, suzuki, can-am, sea-doo & bmw.
where, of course, It would not demonstrate the same symptoms I described, that is, until they took it off the worklift..
aparently when strapped onto the lift they use the footpegs to do so, under which a grounding wire for the main harness had been intermittently connecting.
The main wiring loom had been previously replaced under factory warranty before I purchased the bike so this work was covered by bmw.
They explained that the ground wire was installed in the wrong location.
So, I now have 2 good batteries.
Does anyone need an almost new BMW Excide-Gel?
I'm keeping the new Odessey cell.
Oh and, sorry for the delay to this update but since I got her back, I've been busy actually riding this bike!
P.S. though this dealer fixed my problem I think I'll go to Long Beach for service from now on. I just didn't get the warm and fuzzy from thier service dept.
