690 Battery Issues
« on: May 04, 2015, 09:54:06 am »

I keep my 690 battery connected to a Ctek battery charger most of the time when standing. This weekend, there was a couple of times that I had to tow start the bike, after having pressed the starter, with nothing happening, but a click, and then seems like the dash resets. (Clock back to 12:00 etc..) I will take the battery out and get it tested, question is, bike still has another months of warranty left. Are batteries usually covered under bike warranty?

Could be, they need to do a load check.  If there is any sign of shorting on the posts, they will not pay.
