I have a CV80 that seems to suck every battery dry on me. I have not found a ground any where that is causing the drain. The battery lasts about a year or so but then dies. I am about to order my 4th

Any ideas on where the power drain might be or if it is not charging???

Thanks David

This isn't that helpful, but the CV80 has a really weak electrical system in general, so now that these scoots are older (with old alternators etc.) they often simply don't provide enough juice to run everything and charge the battery. So the batteries die simply from being chronically undercharged.

With my CV80, I always kick started it to avoid draining the battery which kept it charged and mostly healthy. Then the battery was there if I needed it (ie. stalling at a redlight).
