Hi Col! It shouldn't die that quickly, as the guys said check the battery current with everything off. If it's 25mA or so it's likely the battery is on the way out. I'm assuming that it works okay when you're riding it and it stays charged if it's parked for one or two days.hi wingers , does your battery go flat after a week standing. or do I need a new one

I belive the "Odessey Battery's" are AGM?Do NOT get a gell or gel battery, they are not compatible. Get an AGM (Absorbed Glass mat) battery.
In this Desert heat you're lucky if you get 2 years out of a regular acid battery!:baffled:I have to agree wuth exavid, I use the old lead acid batteries, usually get 4-5 years out of them.
Just keep the electrlyte level up by topping with distilled water and when I see the sediment building up on the bottom, I know the end is near.
Col, if your battery is holding up day to day but dies after sitting for a week that probably points to either a parasitic drain or a bad battery. Pull the positive battery cable & place a small 12 volt test light between the removed battery cable & (+) battery post. If the test light lights or glows you have a parasitic drain capable of draining your battery in a week or so. If the test light doesn't glow then you probably have an internal battery problem.hi wingers , does your battery go flat after a week standing. or do I need a new one
