Bike wont hold charge?
I recently moved from San Diego to Boston and when I received my bike off the freight truck it wouldn’t start, seem that the battery was dead. In the transition of moving the bike probably sat for 3 months tops without being started. Anyway, I jumped the bike, drove it the 5 minutes home and forgot about it for the day. When I went back to the bike sure enough it wouldn’t start, I jumped it again and let it run for a half hour or so but when I turned it off and tried turning it back on it wouldn’t start. I bought a brand new battery and the bike started right up. Everything seemed okay until my first real test ride, I started the bike right up and took it for a short 15 minute right, got lunch and then started the bike up again and took another 15 minute ride to get coffee. When I tried to start the bike up it wouldn’t started. I was about to call someone to bring my jumper cables but somehow got the bike to start by keeping the starter held down, and giving it some gas with the choke in. I don’t know how it worked but it did. I got the bike home and couldn’t get it started again. A week later I jumped it and took it for a 45 minute cruise, when I got home the bike started right up, the next day the bike started right up again, however a couple days later the bike was dead again. And this is where I am at today. I don’t know what exactly is going on with the bike and I was hoping some of you guys would have some insight. Its going to be 68 degrees Friday and if I cant right my bike after this horrible week I am going to lose it!
