This battery doesn't seem to like to be brought back from the dead. Mine got partially discharged and I didn't have a charger to bring it back right away, and it soon completely died. I now try and use the battery for hot starts only and throw it on a battery tender after I ride.

I was able to refresh mine after two incidents like this, I thought I would have to buy a new one but now it seems to be fine.

I try to throw a small trick charger on it once a month to refresh this small battery.
