Talking Hello all

Just got a older 750 project, was running but still has some issue's, on here to get advice. the starting up is an issue, it wants to turn over but gives me a series of clicks, will drain the battery if i keep trying. brake light won't engage and only the running lights come on.

i'll post it again somewhere else, but i made sure the battery was charged, and it was, but it takes forever to crank over, gives a sputter, and dies, battery dies cause it takes to long. i don't hold the start button down, i wait after 8-9 cranks, shut off, wait a few moments and try again. i replaced the spark plugs and fyi it is running rich.

Would it be possible to post a video of you trying to start it after a full charge?
Sometimes a battery will charge to full voltage but still lack the cranking amps ... just throwing it out there. Could be something else, but a video would really help.
