    I wonder what the ECU is doing those 15 sec.
    Self check maybe?

    Just to clarify. All I need to do is turn on the key (like I would do if I was going to start up the bike), wait 15+ seconds, then turn the bike off again. That's it?

    I bought my 04 RSVR last summer and I've noticed the battery seems to not keep a charge long. I'm wondering if the previous owner replaced the battery without doing this. If so, is it too late to do this?

    Thanks

    Anytime I replaced a battery on a 04-09 RSV in the past, I would adj the clock and RPM light before starting the bike.
    Without knowing it, I was performing the "key on, wait 15-seconds before start" proceedure.

    I do not follow this part. Are you saying that at any time you check your battery with a multimeter you have to do the key on wait 15secs and then key off. Cheers

    If you check the voltage using the multimeter it is not necessary.
    What Amauri wrote was if you had been measuring the amperage which requires the multimeter to be in series with the battery it is necessary.

    Zeroed Odometer

    Recently replaced my battery, prior to reading Smart money artcile on pg. 98 of Motorcyclist Magazine, my odometer has zeroed out indicating no milage, is there a recall on 2004 rsv1000r factory or a way to resolve this issue?

    Amauri stated that "anytime he replaced a battery on a 04-09 RSV in the past, he would adj the clock and RPM light"...

    So my question to this is, why does the Redline light/RPM light need to be adjusted? Is this something that MUST be done? Also, how is this done?

    I have an 04 RSV1000r factory and the battery is going flat and will need to be replaced, is there a way of doing this without my odometer resetting?

    No recall, only solution is to install a later modelyear dash.

    I have a 2004 RSVR that also went to Zero miles. Turns out that this happens if you disconnect the battery with the ignition key in. Take it out before you disconnect the battery and it should be OK. Mine is. Confirmed this just after it happened by deliberately disconnecting after I'd put a few more miles on. Sure enough, key in, battery disconnected, zero miles.
