Re: Battery dies in 9 - 10 hours when in 1st gear
i actually had 2 bad batteries in 2 years. i believe in one case it was just bad but in the second, i had left the bike un "tended" for a few weeks and had to hit it with a FULL size charger to get a crank out of her. the batteries were from Batteries Plus and they honored both in warranty issues. the 3rd battery is on trickle with my Battery Tender (full size-not Jr.) WHENEVER she's in the garage. if i'm gone overnight, i take the tender with me and use it. this one has been good for a 2nd year now and it keeps on perk-o-latin'.
if it were i, i'd just tell the reseller i want a new battery. screw the testing for their sake.
