I've been left with dead battery the last couple days ....pulled all fuses and still drawing
about 13 volts not running. I know all vehicles draw some but is this a normal amount for
a torrent?

You need to measure the current draw in amps or mili amps not volts. Volts is the battery voltage. Disconnect the negative battery cable connect an ammeter in between a ground and the negative battery cable to measure the draw.

5,695

For this to work, the ammeter needs to be between the end of the negative battery cable and the negative battery terminal when the cable has been disconnected from the battery.
