If you want to find a voltage drain it would be better to connect the battery and put the multi-meter in series with one of the terminals and on current setting(don'd switch the bike on as current might just exceed the multi meter capability).
So.... Im not really sure what search terms i should use to figure out the acceptable voltage drain on my bike...
1) Did I do this right?
2) Is this acceptable when the bike is off?
