I have had, from new, the ginuine immobiliser/alarm fitted to my bike. It has already been replaced once after motoring along in Shitney traffic and suddenly cutting the engine, pulled over and miraculously came back to life after an hour.
I have heard reports of it flattening the battery, but had never experienced this myself, until now.
In a period a 5 days, my battery went from full charged to clickety, click, click. Unable to prove it faulty one way or t'other, I decided I would remove it completely. Took about an hour and took the chance to change some of the shitty zinc(?) plated allen head bolts with ridgy didge stainless items. Lift the seat and the bolt look good!
Before: Battery fully charged, 14.2 volts, after 2 days, 13.1 volts, after another 2 days, 12.5 volts, next cold morning, click.
After: battery fully charged, 14.2 volts, 2 days later, 13.4 volts, 2 days later again, 13.2 volts, easy to start.
Seems to me that the immobiliser/alarm is the problem child, and now shall stay in the box in the cupboard until it decides it's going to play nicely in the sandpit!
Warning: I have a Lithium battery, which needs to be charged to 14.2 volts to fully charge it - I use a power supply at work or home (not a battery charger, and especially not one with a de-sulphuriser built in) and takes around 1 hour to fully charge the battery. The charging system is nominally 13.8 volts on motor vehicles, but it may be higher or lower. It looks like mine is lower, which is not a big deal. A Lithium battery should hold a charge for up to a year, and get 80% of a recharge done in under 10 minutes.
I shall now see how long this takes before I (and if) have issues again. I was suspecting the alternator, but have not heard of one instance of the alternator going west.
