I think my battery is draining faster than it should with bike sitting idle.
I just purchased a multi meter from Harbour Freight tool.
I decided to follow this thread for my testing
As instructed with the battery disconnected I hooked up the multi meter to check draw.
and this is what I discovered...
When bike is idle, Ipod Touch 2nd generation connected the Bike draws 49.9 ma
When I disconnect the Ipod the drain is 40.0 ma or (with IPOD off)
When I disconnect small 3 wire CD plug bike draws 5.5 ma
I then went and systematically disconnected fuses. The greatest reduction from 5.5 that I was able to get was by removing the middle top fuse which reduced the draw to 3.3 ma.
When I turned on the stereo power the numbers jumped to 300+ma
soo what I am getting to is these questions
1) is 5.5 ma a heavy draw?
2) should I disconnect the Neo power ( small 3 wire CD power plug) until I am ready to ride and then disconnect when I put the bike away for the night?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
