    Yep. It's the same story as the voltage regulator mod, these batteries may not last if not charged according to specs (logical, would you say.... :hmmmmm) Amperage seems critical. The PDF also helped me after I "killed" the first battery.

    ’01 R1150GS, key out, if I remember correctly I have and almost 3.0 amp draw. Pulled two fuses, 0.0 amp draw. Now if the bike is going to sit for any length of time I pull the two fuses. My2cts.

    Fuse #3 for the RID is the primary parasitic draw, and #5 for the Motronic is usu. a minor draw. The reason to pull that pair (2) of fuses is that they are always hot. A Kisan Signal Minder, if present, introduces still another parasitic draw.

    There may be one more, can't recall, but these are the big ones. Pulling the fuse for the RID alone is what I gen. do for storage periods measured in weeks. If months I often just disconnect the neg. (-) battery lead. YMMV.
