f4i starting issue.
Currently my f4i will not start with the starter.
I rode to work today, started fine and had a good ride in. this evening i go to start it and nothing, it won't turn on and acts like the battery was dead. we got a battery charger out and it said it was charged up after an hour or so. try and start and nothiong, it kills everything and resets the time.
I can bump start it fine though.
If i leave the bike sitting for more than 5 days without starting it the battery is weak, if i leave it on teh tender things tend to be fine.
I also have the crusty white build up on the negative abttery terminal, and i cleaned it up some tonight.
Is it possible my rectifeir is bad and causing the drain on teh battery? What else can I check on?

It sounds like when you put a load to the battery it's breaking down, even though it shows good voltage on the meter (unloaded).
Have the battery load tested, if you bring it by tomorrow when we reopen I can check it for you, no charge.
