Imm light should only flash for 24hrs after switch off.

Get yourself a Yuasa YTX14H-BS, pretty sure that's the beefiest regular type battery you can get for the Sport.

Yes, and even that, is only 12.6Ah. To OP, have you found a battery that'll fit, that'll give you 14Ah?

The immobiliser light was off this morning but without an amps clamp I couldnt check current draw ,as connecting my ammeter in series with the battery would of triggered the  light again,battery voltage was 12.7 so definately invest in a 14ah battery .

If you have the interest, disconnect your negative from the battery, place a jumper in parallel with your meter and let it all settle down. Now you can open the jumper and divert current through your meter without switching anything. Then you'd know...

The  im light was off this morning after 24 hrs, so I agree beefier battery if I do not use it for a couple of weeks.Thank you for the recommendation :062:

The draw of 0.030ma is normal.

Bypass the alarm system. Get a tracker system.

Knowing what the cause of the draw your set. 
Last battery I put in was a 19 series, around 260 CCA. I'm a fan of lithium battery's.

How difficult is it to fix whatever the real problem is? Long term, that has to be better than swerving around it.

Without an amp clamp at the moment, I will go to work and pick it up this will give me an accurate reading .I will solve the problem from there on.

Clamp-on ammeter is not going to be much use at the milliamp range you're checking. Most are very inaccurate at those levels. Rather go inline with a meter selected to a low range. It'll require some fiddling but it'll be accurate.
