Parasitic draw

Have an issue with the battery draining on my aprilia etx 125.
If I fully charge the battery and then leave the bike unused for more than 2-3 days then the battery disscharges and all the lights get very dim.

I think the battery is ok, if I remember correctly it's around 5month old, so today I tested for parasitic drain and it shows 0.68 milliamps.

Anyone have any idea if this is about right for my bike with everything switched off? or could this be the cause of the battery draining?

Problem solved, or at least found. Left battery disconnected for 2 days and it held up fine, found the bike to be taking only 0.02 and the datatool alarm 0.66 milliamps even when unarmed.
