  4. Battery issues on 2014 R1200RT

    RT Series
    I went to ride my 2014 RT a couple of days ago and it was completely dead. I had not ridden in probably 3 weeks or more, but I was surprised that it was completely dead. When I turn on the key I get nothing. I recently put the top case back on and the light works inside the case. I am concerned...

    Batteries, Chargers, & Electrical
    I was looking to replace my stock battery on an 2009 RT and the Odyssey seems to be a popular choice. My concern is that the BMW charger (canbus) is not listed as an approved charger. Does anyone have experience with this combination of charger and battery? Thanks - Bluerocker
  8. Battery dies in 9 - 10 hours when in 1st gear

    K1200LT
    Strange things has been happening. When I leave the 2003 LT in 1st gear, the battery drains to the point of not being able to start the bike in 9 - 10 hours. Thought I had a bad battery, but ran all the tests from the manufacturer and that looks good. I started leaving it in 1st gear at work...
  9. CAN I GET AN ODYSSEY BATTERY?

    Batteries, Chargers, & Electrical
    I searched the site for battery suggestions. It seems that the Odyssey PD 680 is a desirable battery for my K1200LT. I assume that PD 680 is a model number, not a size. Unfortunately when I went to Odyssey's website I got this message. There is currently no battery match for this vehicle...
