A bad battery does this. I'd take the battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to "load test" the battery. More than likely, this is the problem.

However, when you connect the battery back up, connect the positive side first. Make sure the switch and everything else is OFF. When you go to connect the negative battery cable, see if you notice a spark. If your bike has a computer onboard to run fuel injection, you see a small spark but it'll be a very small one. If you get a large spark, you do indeed have something pulling a lot of current when it's not supposed to.

Good Luck
Steve

I have an 01 kia rio that seems to be having a problem with the battery holding a charge, battery, alternator, and even the starter are all brand new. Everything will run fine for a day or two then I


place an amp meter in the circuit of the battery earth wire and get an idea of what the current draw is so you can have an idea of what piece of equipment is using the power. Radio amps require a big draw where glove box light, boot light, interior light are small draws. If it shows a medium draw the pull the ECM fuse, or IGN fuse or light control module fuse to see if the current draw drops . Even new alternators can be faulty especially if the unit was not wired up correctly and blew a diode. All it takes is a simple touch . have an accredited auto electrician check it out on the bench

Voltage draw on a ford 2003 zx2 when the the car is turned off?


Current draw (not voltage draw) must be nearly zero Micro-amps even with alarm system, clock time keeping, and computer memory support--otherwise the battery would discharge over a fairly short period of time. The higher the Micro-amps, the quicker the battery dies.

Electrical short drawing down the battery. I have replaced the battery and checked lights and radio...


Pull the neg. battery cable off the battery and connect a test light between the neg. cable and the neg. battery post if there is a draw it will light up. Make sure the doors are shut and ign. is off and start by pulling the fuses one at a time to see if the test light goes out(making sure to replace each fuse before moving on to the next one) if the light goes off then you have found the circuit that is pulling the draw, once you narrow it down it should be pretty easy to find exactly what is drawing the battery down.
