We love our Spyder....however, went to start her up and there was a dead battery. Called the local BRP mechanic and brought it in. The mechanic stated that the charging system was fine, but mentioned that the Spyder drinks battery juice even when it is shut off with no key in it, and that it was normal. He suggested that we buy a trickle charger. It is my opinion that this mechanic was under-educated about these bikes (but that's my opinion). How am I supposed to go on a road trip if I have to plug my bike into a wall when I'm not riding it? And to top it off, BRP wouldn't cover the cost for the mechanic to look at it!! Has this happened to anyone? I mean this is a new vehicle, I don't think it normal for this to happen, really? We're truly frustrated by this....this has happened twice!!! and yes the 600 mile tune-up was performed on it. Any suggestions...please advise..
