Help!?!?!?!

Ok here's the situation;

I have riden the bike about 3 or 4 times this year with no problems whatsoever. BUT I go to get on about a week ago and I got no juice at all, just the annoying clicking sound when I try to turn it over.

I never had a charging issue before this so I trickle it all night and go to start her up and she fires. Ride her to the gas station and fill up, try to start and nothing again. I pushed down the road and got it to fire and rode the 2 min ride home.

I figured I just didn't let it charge running enough and put it back on the charger, she fires again the next day just fine take it out for about a 30 min ride and pull in the garage shut it off and just for grins try to re-fire.....nothing!!

I took the battery in and they said it was good just needed a solid charge, well I dont buy that so I am gonna grab a new one pretty quick here, but my main question is where am I looking to start with what would be the issue? I thought stator or R/R first? Anything elses I should jump on to look at?

Also I noticed a strange thing when I have attemped to start the bike after a charge. My clock is resetting almost everytime I try to fire it up. For example; I leave the charger on for a few hours and the clock says 4:39 when the key turns on. After I try to turn it over it goes back to the default 1:00?!?

I am lost, any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks All!

Step one: get an Optimate (model 3 or 4) and use this to charge and test your battery. Chicago Performance can get you one (then he can buy some halloween candy this year).

Step two: see this thread and once you have a fully charged battery, follow the trouble shooting flow chart I provide a link to in that tread - https://www.chicagolandsportbikes.com...ad.php?t=87865

If you already have a fully charged battery, skip to step two (but I still recommend an Optimate to keep your battery in shape, though Pilotx1 might chime in and tell you how he has never done anything such as that with a battery and he has never had a problem in all the years he has been riding motorcycles).

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

original battery from an 07? Get a new battery. This Friday I will have full stock of batteries that will fit your bike and save you 5 lbs and last double OEM/Yuasa battery by simply changing the battery.

You are looking at either 118.19 or 140 for a stronger one if you are running any electronics like heated gear and shit. Both are under 2 lbs
