Anyone replace their battery yet?

Just went to start bike and battery was dead after a week of not riding it. I'm charging it. Almost 2 years old. Think it's time for a new one. Anyone have any suggestions where to buy one at a good price, and which one? I've had good luck with Shorai lithium Iron batteries in the past, but it's like 200 bucks for the Strom. I only paid 160 for my Shorai for the ducati.

no switch on the USB or switch left on likely the drain.

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

No, it's on side. Unswitched.

Before they came out with smart chargers I never got more than 2 years out of a bike battery. Sometimes only one.
