The Flying Jaffa Cake has destroyed another battery - despite being on an Optimate.

Any ideas, oh wise ones? No Craig, buying a BMW is not an option.

I never had this problem with any of my Suzukis! Dead Motorcycle 720760

The dealer (B'mth Kawasaki) were less than helpful the first time, I haven't tried again. A new battery is on it's way. When it arrives I will be seeking help to fit it. Also will be getting the electrics checked over this time. A battery a year is getting a tad expensive.

I bet it is expensive, it's a bit odd though especially as you have it on an optimate.

Hi Mandella,
It might be worth getting the Regulator/Rectifier checked, like Patch, if you need any help just call.
Regards John.

Hi John
I was thinking it could be the regulator/rectifier and was going to test that and a couple things before I put the new battery on bike. But if I need any advice can I give you a call. Dead Motorcycle 720760

Something shorting out to earth?
Clearly a fault, my KLV is on it's original battery, and that is an Orange Kawasaki as well.
