I was out of town for 10 days so my vn750 sat for that time. When I started it to go to work it started very slowly...... but it started. I rode the 18 miles to work and stopped for gas. When I went to re-start, it was dead(not even a click)
I borrowed their battery charger and got the bike started, then took it to work. At work I put it on a trickle charger all day (co-worker had one in his trunk).
When I got home I checked out the charging system.... all checked out fine.
yesterday I put the bike in the shop for new tires, I told them what happened and had their tech check it out. they did a load test on the battery (OK), checked out the charging system (OK) checked for loose wires and connectors(OK)
so here is my question.... Why did it go dead? was just sitting for 10 days enough to drain the battery sufficiently to cause that?
I ride the bike most days so it doesn't sit much....any theories??
