I usually change my battery after 3 years, even though I use a battery tender most of the time, especailly during the winter due to less riding.
In the past, I have had sveral problems with ABS lights flashing when the battery isn't up to par, and who needs a problem while on the road? Better safe than sorry, and the price isn't exorbitant to swap out every 3 years or so. Yes, I did get 8 years on my last Jap bike, but there were no farkles on the bike and I was very cheap in those days...
