91 K100RS Battery Drain
I've enjoyed my K100RS for a few years now, and about two years ago I had to replace the voltage regulator which was draining my battery. It's run fine ever since. Yesterday I went to start the bike and it was dead. When I jumped it, without the key or kill switch engage, it attempted to start. Is this normal?
I was able to get it started, and let it run for a short while, but it did not maintain a charge.
Why might it have drained? Might the battery be dead? Could it be an issue with the replaced voltage regulator? I'm happy to take it in, but before I do I was hoping to get a response from you fabulous, knowledgeable folks.
