Angry Battery problems

Hello all fellow Trumpet riders. Just wondering if anyone with a 2002 RS has had battery failure problems. I have gone through two batteries in 5 months. I ride 2-3 times per week. I have had the charging system checked and it according the mechanics it is working properlly. I am concerned that the cooling fans staying on after I turn the bike off is a big part of the problem. Has anyone else has this happen with their Triumphs?

Nope. I ride mine nearly every day, and the fans are nearly always on when I switch off at this time of year (111F ambient today). Despite this kind of abuse, and AZ being notoriously hard on batteries, I'm still onthe original. My bet is that you have had a couple of dud batteries.
