Suzuki Burgman 200 Battery Drain Flat

Hi, my YTX9-BS battery went flat and so I changed a new one, same brand Yuasa and same model, but it still went flat after about 3 days of non-use.
I measured the parasitic current draw, is about 2mA, and at 5000 rpm, the voltage is about 14 volts.
I am at a lost why the battery went flat.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Two quick possibilities:
1. Make sure you haven't left the ignition switch in the "parking lights" position.
2. Check the switch for the underseat cargo space light to ensure it's working properly. It is located on the body under the front of the seat (and is easy to find).

A third one:
If you have any accessories installed (radio, GPS, phone charger) that are wired directly to the battery or to a power lead that does not shut off with the ignition switch, check that they are switched off or unplugged when the bike is left unused for an extended time.

Not all who wander lack GPS.

Thanks Rusty, its the underseat cargo space light.


Sorry guys, I have inadvertently posted twice because of site registration issue I had before.
