battery issue

Is it normal for a battery to be almost completely drained after not driving for two days...i have never had this problem before on my 06 600rr .should i leave it plugged into my battery tender while not riding? could my clear alternatives tail light be an issue?

it's not normal, something is draining the battery. Disconnect your tail light and see if your battery is still draining.

agreed. if you ride your bike once a week, you wouldn't need to put it on a charger.

if it's still doing it, borrow a nice multimeter and check for current draw when the bike is off.

i checked out the lose wire and that wasnt the problem...my multimeter showed that my charging system was putting out way to much power,even at an idle and i guess it has messed up my battery....now it wont even hold a charge...so its back to the shop for some warranty work
