    Battery issue

    Was playing about with my GS 911 probably for about an hour or so, went through loads of checks and generally messing about. Wrapped up, turned on ign, usual circuits kicked in and then nothing, starters not even kicking in, thinking I'd done something I retraced my steps, checked terminals..all good, turns out battery was sitting at 11v !... think I've eventually killed it off. Got it on charge...looks like a possible replacement needed.

    Playing with stuff on they with ignition on will kill a battery fast.

    I usually have to charge my battery every two to three weeks when laid up over winter. The cold weather doesn't help.

    CTEK chargers are the best IMO
