Question about 2007 Triumph Speed triple
Did you get one of those gel batteries? Did you charge it up overnight when you put the gel in it? Or did the shop do it? You can't check the gravity in that battery, but you can in the old acid battery. If it is an acid battery, get one of those floaty ball things and check the electrolytes in each cell. One bad cell, no good. I have seen many brand new batteries be, No good. So, check that out, if the batteries check out, how about the terminals? clean? Do you have an anti theft device? How about the reset key?? I don't know what happened, but I am hoping it is just the battery. Hope this helps.

Most batteries are dry charged to only about 60 % prior to shelving. You may have had one that was much lower. Your ride could have just drained it down.
You should pull the battery and check its state of charge with either a load tester at a parts store or buy a specific gravity meter *( cheap also at parts store). Make sure the battery is fresh, new and fully charged!
You key off should have been enough shut off everything. You can also use a multimeter if you suspect a short causing excessive battery drain.
Run it inline with the ground wire and set your meter for microamps.
Make sure everything is off. You are looking for a small drain. If you meter goes offscale then you know you have something bigger to deal with.
Keep me posted!
