Can someone tell me approximately what the parasitic drain is in mA for a 2015 Vespa sprint? No options/alarm. Just clock and immobilizer.
Battery charges but goes down in about a week. New battery. Charge holds at 13.1v. Charge voltage is approx. 13.9v - 14.2. Alternator seems ok….not sure about voltage regulator.
Any help would be appreciated

Sorry for posting in Not so Modern
Couldn't get GD to load at first. Darn Apple product!

Borrow a meter and measure it. Pull one of the battery leads off and connect an ammeter between it and the battery.

if doing what oldgoat says shows more drain then you feel is acceptable then while doing that try removing the different fuses to see which drops it a lot. compare this to the wiring diagram for understanding

Battery goes down to what? 12.6 volt is fine.
