Thanks JR
Yes they did say that about the piston.
Think he checked most or all those things you listed
But, the bike sat on the showroom floor for several months and I was wondering about the battery starting to fail, myself
You say OEM are known to fail. What would you suggest for next battery? I am not concerned about saving weight. Just want a reliable long lasting battery.

About two years back I got a Deka brand battery from these guys:

http://www.etx14.com/index.html

$80 bucks and free shipping within USA.

They are a small reseller/retailer with great service & prices.
The Deka is mfg. in USA and seems a very high quality unit.
I bought it on Joel Wiseman's recommendation as the best of the "regular" AGM batteries.

It's been a fine performer so far.

I was not ready to make the jump to the exotic stuff.
