Not starting! Newbie needs help!
Hey guys, I bought an '03 Vulcan a week ago that was sitting for a year. It was driven about 3 miles on the old fluids before I changed the oil (just a test drive, basically). After I changed the oil, the bike started fine and ran smoother, so I took it up and down the block a couple of times just for the hell of it.
Later in the day, I go to start it up and the starter just cranks and I get loud backfires. I figured that it was a hot starting issue (although I do have a MF battery), so I let it set overnight to cool off. I went to start it up 20 mins ago and the starter just cranks and I hear clicking coming from under the left-side engine cover (when sitting on the bike).
Any words of wisdom?
