Got my bike back late Friday. The shop couldn’t locate a single thing wrong with it after spending over two hours in attempts to diagnose the battery drain.
In their defense, I had only seen a single indication of an upcoming problem. When the clock reset itself every previous time, which always meant I was in for a dead battery within a day.
Once I got the bike back home, I set it up on the batteryminder to de-sulphate and re-charge. I ended up driving the truck to work today because the desulphating process can take anywhere from a few days to a week to complete. Once that finishes off, I will be borrowing a multi-meter from a friend to help me diagnose or at least track down any sort of voltage issues in the wiring harness, stator, r/r, or battery…. We’ll see how it goes. Glad I printed out some guides from my VFR forums to help me since I really don’t know the first thing about motorcycle electrics.
Time will tell I guess.
