Your battery is 3 years old now. Why risk the chance of getting stranded, just replace it so you don't have to worry.

The battery in my bike is fairly new from a 2009 C109 it was install this summer..
Wasn't aware of that since your signature indicates your bike is 2007. I still think for peace of mind you should replace it. Once batteries run dry they never hold a charge properly.

I did the same thing. She is dead; why try to resurrect when there's a chance it might leave you stranded. IMHO You need to replace.

when regular batteries get completely drained they can be recharged but never get back to a full 100% of where they once were. they lose a small percentage of the ability to get fully charged. if they get completely drained one too many times it is sometimes best to just replace with a new battery just to be safe.
i would try charging it properly and seeing how it responds to that. if it gives you any further problems, just replace it.

if you replace it, go with the gman industries Gbat. :bigthumbsup:
