Hello to all. I inherited me dad's 2012 rt se5 when he passed almost 2 years ago. He sure loved this bike. The battery always had a drain, but I took the radio fuse out and it stopped. Anything else run on that fuse? Also no speedo dash light, only outside guages. Any help would be great. Tks.

It would be a MUCH better solution to put the fuse back in and keep the battery charged up.
Either with a tender or with a few hours a month on a regular charger.

AND....automotive batteries will "self discharge" even when sitting disconnected.
That "drain" gets worse as the battery ages. It also gets worse if the charge is allowed to go too low.

It is probably time for a new one......since the one in there might be over 5 years old.
