Battery went dead...
Anyone know why a battery would go dead over like three days (in water) on a 2006 GP1300R? Just looking for ideas.
Thanks in advance.

Riding it or parked in the water?
If it was parked, you have a leak, and your bilge was running to keep afloat.

anyone know any areas that would likely be the cause of the leak?

Batteries can go bad, but just the fact you were in the water and it happened makes me think it was the bilge pump.
It never went dead on land right?
You can put it in the water and watch, or you can unhook the bilge pump, put some water in the bottom of the hull, and see where it leaks out as well.

Unfortunately the stock bilge is not automatic... probably just a bad battery

It is not an automatic bilge? I thought it was.
If it is not, and the battery is bad, how much is a new battery?

You can get a nice gel one for under 100 bucks most places
