While working on my 2003 on Sunday, I noticed I was late for an appointment and hastily returned the bike to the garage. Next day, I found that the little red light was still glowing. I'd stupidly left the ignition turned on all night. Bike started and it even electric started...But I am not sure if I've done some damage.


Any thoughts as to whether I may have damaged the bike in leaving it on overnight?

Thanks, beezer. Sounds like you are saying it should not hurt the bike.


Thanks again.

It's prolly not good for the battery but other than that I doubt any harm was done.
