Stock battery dying?

I had the battery icon, this red exclamation point<!> pop up today along with a brake failure light which went off when I rolled away.

Is it time for an aftermarket battery? My SP2820 would also restart when I started the bike, but MY zumo 550 doesn't do it. I don't want to shell out the dough right now.

The icon went off when you rolled away, right? Thats normal for the bike and you probably just didn't notice it previously.

Let me guess, you recently read a thread about someone else having battery issues and started paying attention to it.

It's happened to all of us here from time to time...don't sweat it, just ride and enjoy.

Or just buy an Odyssey and never worry about it again for years.
