000 miles a year but spread this out through the year except for very wet windy or icy days. I have had to buy a new battery every year and yet again it's failing to turn the engine over. My garage does not have electrical power and is some distance from the house so can't run an extension lead for battery charger. Any ideas?I swapped to odyssey on the Breva 750 I had similar problem: parked outside where cant put on tender, used all year but with gaps. Original wet lead acid would die in about 4 days in winter (alarm plus electronic instruments drain), odyssey is still good enough to fire it after 2-3 weeks. there are cheaper makes of AGM battery than odyssey, and in standard battery dimensions (odyssey use their own sizes), but odyssey are the only one that could give me deep discharge information & specifications. Note check compatability of mains chargers before using on AGM batteries, correct voltage regulation is important.,,,

does the battery tray remove easily to allow acces to the pinion?What if you replace the allen cap screw with a hex cap. Mine is a hex and it's fairly easy to remove and install with a 10mm wrench. Of course I'm talking about a different model here? Just a thought.,

in fact only turned over once befors starter was clicking away. Pushed it home tried again - nothing. Put battery on charger - charged up in 15 minutes - tried to start - engine turned over couple of times then click click click at starter been out this morning checked all connections and earths - charged battery up - read 13.22v when full charge light came on, tried to start up - turned over several times, getting slowwr then click click. Checked battery reading 12.17v Any suggestions - is it the battery or what else?,The fact that the voltage drops as the revs increase is very odd. However, the dash voltmeter which I assume you are using is often inaccurate. Try an alternative battery, at least to see if it starts. You could use a car battery with jump leads. With a decent battery the charging might improve too.,,,
