My 2014 still has the original. I never charge it like I started before. But dang it, I’m sure by reading this thread, my battery is sure to die soon!!!
Ride safe, and ride often!

Having read this thread and seen the cost of a new battery for my Gen3 (Yuasa @ £175) - ouch! I've decided to pamper mine and I upgraded my Battery Charger/Monitor to a CTEK MXS5.

2014 with 110,000kms on the original battery. I keep my bikes in an unheated shed (it gets REALLY cold here :190:) and have used Battery Tenders for years. OE batteries always seem to outlast replacements for some reason.
If you're not grown up by the time you're 40 you don't have too...

A good battery and a good tender gives me 6 to 8 years battery life on all of my vehicles. Sometimes a little more. Always on a tender when not used regularly.
