Battery drain from fan?

My bike has had the battery draining while the bike is sitting. I had a friend come over and help me look at it, and he said I had a drain coming from the ecu, which I believe is normal, there should be a little power into that one all the time if I read right, but then there was also a drain coming from the fuse for the fan. Anyone had this issue? Anyone have any ideas what could cause this before I start digging too deep?

How much?

There are threads here that discuss the amount of typical batter drain, with individual results in the 20 to 50 miliamp range. I routinely keep my bike on a trickle charger and forget about it. Others have gone to great lengths to eliminate/minimize the drain.

If a fuse is draining, then there's a short. Should be no current draw in fan circuit when fan is not running.

Someday is not a day of the week.
