Been a while

Haven't been on in quite a whole. But i have an issue and u boys are the right ones to ask. Just went out to start my bike and it's dead. And my battery tender shows it's not even charging. I've had to replace the battery before due to a bad junction box. It was rebuilt by KC and it worked beautifully all summer. Now it's just dead. Any ideas?

Disconect the battery from the bike and charge. Check to see if it charges. If not, bad battery. Otherwise...

Connect it back and leave it hooked to the bike for a day. Check it. If no charge you have a short.

hey man...glad to see you again online!

Text me or call if you need help.
Check your fuses, ground connections and see if the charger is putting out any voltage first.

Yea I've been working and just dealing with personal stuff. Was gonna take her out for a little ride around town. Turned the key and had nothing, not even a light. I'll probably get out there some time tomorrow and pull the battery.

I talked to Anthony before to see how wolf was doing. Once it's riding weather again I'll be up to visit with a 6pack haha.
I have the battery on the trickle and it's showing its not charging. Got a guy coming over in the next two weeks to check the stator, R/R and maybe the Junction box. Hopefully it's so,etching simple but something has to be draining these batteries

We replaced your JB last time because something was shorting out internally and causing the starter and fan to engage on it's own.
I think we fixed the symptom rather than the cause, but unless we hear the relays click on and are able to troubleshoot at that moment, it was going to be a very difficult issue to resolve.

I suspect a short someplace in the electrical system, but can't even guess as to where at this point.
When your friend comes over to check things, do me a favor and document EVERYTHING he tests as well as his findings so we have a base to work from.
Something tells me this is not over yet.

Let me know if you need anything.
