Funny story I got to stare. Been raining almost every day here in Pa and haven't got much ridding in so far. Today wife and I were going to get ups finish mowing the lawns this morning, then head out on our 1100 before the forecasted rain coming back tonight. So were running our butts off trying to get done any out before noon(too many lawns). Were all done by 12 I go out to get the bike and found out I let the key on last time I moved in in the garage and the battery's dead. I dont have a battery charger at home just my little 1.75 amp tender, so I [put it one for an hours while I do some other stuff to see if it will come back, it wont, so I run down to my local Advanced auto with the battery to see if they go one - sure enough they do.....so about 1:30 I thinking we might get a ride in today. I check the new battery with tested it shows 12.3 V so I swap out the batteries and put the tender on it for a half hour and go back to other things , and come back and try to start it up, all that happens is the relay under the seat vibrates, I check it has 12.8 with tender on it but when I tun the key on it quickly drops to 9.4 or so volt. So I'm searching on here to see what I might have shorted out with leaving the key on....spent couple more hours tying to figure out what was going on. I got it to turn over but then the battery would be dead, I though man that new battery couldn't be bad could it, so I used an old one out of another old bike to test and sure it turns out the battery was bad, took it back they said we having a lot of that of late, he just handed me a new one and said try it - sure enough. Started right up. - and we had about an hour to take a little spin and get home here tonight before it started raining again.
4 hours wasted of the nicest riding day this year ....on a brand new, junk battery.
