Thanks Ken. You've certainly given me something to look for.
It definitely looks like the battery has dropped a cell. Reads a full 13.4v, but cannot take any load.
As for the Sat Nav, having purchased the Navigator IV (designed for the bike) this unit is I believe the first one to have been fitted to the cradle. Everything behind the cover and faceplate looked literally brand new.
The GPS sensed the bike shutting down and automatically went to its own battery backup prior to shutting down completely. Not sure if there could still be a trickle drain, but one would imagine that while that may cause the battery to go flat, it would not cause it to drop a cell.
That leaves the jump start issue... can't do anything until I get a new battery. The old one is less than any ear old (9 months) so it should be under warranty. On top of that, living in a regional area and being still in the silly season, the exact battery is nowhere to be found locally. This forces me to wait until next week when my mechanic is back from holidays.
I will post the outcome, watch this space.
