156 Battery self discharge

I am a new member to the forum and joined as a result of trying to find out why my battery self discharges after 3-4 days. I note other members have had similar problems, notably the radio and the rev counter.
I would be interested in any additional comments, because I tested my battery leads with a multimeter, expecting to find a leakage path, but only got an open circuit. To me this suggests there is some active circuitry (electronics) that is creating a leakage path when the battery leads are connected to the battery (i.e when voltage is applied to the active circuitry). Does anyone know of anything connected across the battery that could cause this problem?
