Also, every time you reconnect the battery, you would have to turn the key on, fully open and close the throttle two times, shut off the ignition, then start the bike. Then do the whole thing again when you disconnect the power!
I would try the disconnect switch for the dice unit first. This was a known issue on the early dice units. There is a posting somewhere detailing how to install the switch.
Might just be my 02 K1200LT, but I've pulled the batter a few times and completely disconnected the batter several times and never had to go through what you mentioned about re-learning and twisting the throttle. Maybe I'm not getting the benefit of something! Seems to be running well though.
I always leave mine in "lock" which is the "OFF" position with the key removed, never just turned 1/2 way between R & OFF which also seems to cut the power but leaves the steering free to turn & you can't remove the key. The DICE unit still drained it in 2-3 days. The battery is an OEM that was replaced Nov 2009, so still under warranty... but I'm pretty sure the battery is not at fault.kminz said:You folks may want to check the status of your 12V CD or Dice untis leads when the key is in the locked position, not the off position. I have an '05 K1200LT that will draw down the battery if unrriden in about 1 and 1/2 weeks if I leave the key in the off postion. As I understand it, the key in the locked position shuts off more power sources than when the key in the the off position.
