Full battery drain: what to do?

By distraction I turned off my Hypermotard 1100 S with the key in position P, as a result the battery was discharged.

Dear Maurizio, the adjustments to which you refer are not to be repeated with each discharge of the battery: however, to preserve its life it is advisable to submit it to a controlled charging cycle. The battery that reaches the full discharge must in fact be subjected to a preliminary low current charging cycle for at least 10-12 hours: the amperage in this delicate recovery phase should not exceed 0.5 A. After that, the battery can recharge normally with a current of 2.5-3 A for the necessary time (in your case about 12 hours beyond those of the preliminary phase).

It is obviously mandatory to use a state-of-the-art electronically designed charger and the classic “transformers” used for cars are banned. Full discharge is a very dangerous event and in some conditions can permanently affect the functionality of the battery.
