    According to the service manual the maximum leakage current is 1.2 mA. More than that is not normal and indicates a short. You must the current that any other extra addon needs in standby...

    1.2 mA is less than 17 days to 50% SoC for a Yuasa YTZ12S.


    I guess there will be a difference on motorcycles without HISS. The above must cover the NCs with HISS...

    That shop manual is the maximum allowable 1.2 ma ( .0012 amps) draw. I have measured a known good bike and the actual parasitic draw was far less.

    I recall I published that measured draw some time back. I don’t remember the amount as we speak and I am away from my bike so I can not remeasure the draw for a week or two.

    Thanks for the various responses. I will shortly get the draw assessed by my Tech. From what is being suggested above it would appear that the tracker is the nasty responsible for the steady draw on the battery which would appear currently to be losing slightly less than 0.1V per 24 hours. I had similar problems with a factory alarm on my former KTM950SM. It used to eat batteries almost annually.

    Do two measurements. One with the tracker connected and one without.


    Let us know...

    Wouldn't it be better to use one of those newer "smart tracker system" (Monimoto?), with internal batteries that can last for up to 12 month?

    It sounds promising but I would prefer some user reviews...

    Sounds like the way to go in future.
