Damn bike wont start. Its been giving me crap for past couple months, but was only couple times and spaced out so I was hoping it was a fluke thing. Now its been 4 times in the past week.
I turn the key to on, push the starter, and the solenoid clicks but no turning of the engine. Battley replaced the battery for me about a month and half ago thinking that was the problem. I have been religously plugging it into the tender though, and the tender says its fully charged. It happened last week, it started up fine before the MAD meeting, then when the meeting was over it was dead. push started it, rode to a MAD members house for safety wire stuff, started up fine 3 times after the push start that day. once this past week it didnt start up after washing it (I was very careful with the water) so I left a hair dryer on it for few hours thinking maybe I got it wet some how. It started up later so I let it run for a few minutes then turned it off and plugged into the tender until this morning. It wouldnt start, push started it rode to work, then thought I should try it again make sure it will start after work, no dice, so I push started it again and rode it to battley's to drop it off (their techs will be in tommorrow). Tried it again just for kicks in battley's parking lot, same deal no crank over, just clicks.
Sorry for the long post, was wondering if anything similar has happened to anyone else, I'm thinking either the tender is somehow burning up batteries (this current batt is only a 6 weeks old) or the starter is dead? I'll be calling battley's in the morning and figured if anyone has any advice mention it to them and see if they can check it out. Thanks for listening to the whole ordeal.
