Couple of things about the battery from what I was recently told. This bike, at least my Darkhorse, has 5 computers on it which draw more power with the bike off than other bikes. I was told last week that PI states the bike should always be on a trickle charger when not in use. Supposedly the selling dealer is suppose to tell you that and show you the charge port. For what it's worth, mine didn't and my port was buried also.
