Lightbulb installed a pc3 and acumen indicator....

So I installed everything and I feel like my battery is dyin a little faster than normal. I have a old shitty batt in there, and it might just be that but I was just curious if all those components are draining the battery. also when i installed the acumen, the harness was for an 03 04 so i had to cut it up and hard wire it into the main harness. could i have hooked it wrong to where its drainin the battery. thanks for the help in advance

Neither of those should draw any current while the bike is off. Sounds like its time to spring for a new battery.

Take the battery off the bike and head to any auto parts store such as pep boys
Auto zone and get the battery load tested having extra electronics on the bike
should not cause that much a load work on the stock battery
