Since moving into the CBD close to work my VTR doesn't get ridden often. I went to head out for a 5hr ride today and the battery is dead flat, not even enough charge to power the indicator lights. Rung around and cheapest quote for the Yuasa MF battery was $180. Popped down to Autobarn to get a battery charger and even that can't charge (manual indicates if the battery has dropped below 3 volts it won't charge). Lazy mistake. I should have heed the advice to start the bike every few days. Won't make the mistake again. Looks like I'm up for a new battery.
