Bike: 2018 Husqvarna FE350
I have an intermittent battery drain. Sometimes when I park (turn bike off and take out the key) the bike for 12 hours or so, the battery will be dead. Sometimes, the battery will be fine, and the voltage will have not dropped at all.
I've replaced the battery a couple times, and had the newest one tested. The battery is perfect.
Also, it seems that every time I disconnect the battery, then reconnect it, the drain is no longer present. In order to get the drain to appear again, I have to fire the bike up. Even then, sometimes the drain won't appear. It is quite intermittent, and makes it challenging to diagnose.
I've taken it to the mechanic and they claimed it was a loose battery terminal. It wasn't. I've checked every fuse. They are fine.
I was thinking about just sticking a switch between the negative battery terminal and the black wire that is connected to this negative terminal. When I'm not using the bike I would flip the switch and effectively disconnect the battery from all circuits rendering the effects of the battery drain null. This was the switch I was thinking of buying
Is this a viable strategy? Also do I need to use heavier duty wires/switch if I stick a switch in this location to accomodate the amp draw?
