Disconnect the Battery

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by xzibit, Nov 19, 2006.

  1. Hi All,

    I won't be riding my bike for a couple of weeks. Can I disconnect the battery to stop it from draining? Will this stuff up my ECU or alarm, etc?


  2. It shouldn't harm the ECU/management. The alarm may run its internal backup battery flat but again shouldn't do any harm. But really if its only a week or two don't bother.
  3. Get a battery tender. Great investment, and you can easily transfer it from bike to bike.
