As usual I stand to be corrected :rolleyes: but as far as I'm aware charging problems on 1100s are very rare, but they do benefit from a new battery every now and then, especially ABS ones like yours. If you charge it and it loses charge again, clean the contacts, fit a new one and you probably won't have any more problems. It might be worth having a chat with the vendor, he may know when it was last replaced.

Nice bike Deanus - enjoy it. Don't buy anything new for it until you have ridden if for a while. If it does not need anything done to it leave it alone and you will have fun.
