I've had lots of bikes over the last 30 years (including two Sprint ST's) and never a problem with batteries. However, since I got my Sprint St 1050 I have had problems starting because the battery is frequently flat. Has anyone had the same problems with the ST 1050 ? (BTW - getting the battery out is a major exercise compared to the older Sprint ST models).
Sprint St 1050 Battery problems

I have 955 ST
and mine was the same, prob due to the alarm. (only if I left it for more than a couple of weeks. If started every day it was ok)I have an optimate fitted now whilst in my garage, and have had no problems since. (same battery)
I`ve had batteries made in china/taiwan and they only last 18months and struggle too hold charge, When the battery is a long job getting it out,I suggest you buy a yuasa made in japan,these will hold charge for weeks even with an alarm as i did on my fjr
