I installed a Yuasa MF battery a while back and am very happy with it.
Now a new problem is happening!
Sometimes when I go to start the bike, the battery acts like it is dead. The solenoid makes a clicking sound. Today I noticed that when this happens the two turn signal lights on the dash will come on but very dim while I press the starter button!
I checked the voltage of the battery and it is 13 volts.
I am not the greatest with electrical problems so any help would be fine.:doh:
Sounds like to me that there is a problem with the wire harness, but where would I start??

Check the connectors on the battery. That would happen to me every once in a while but if I played with the battery terminals it fixed it. I finally completely took them off and reseated them with dielectric grease, and it fixed it.

Sounds like you have a bad battery ground or a bad solenoid ground. The negative battery post grounds to the frame but also check the ground from the battery box to the engine.

x2 !

Battery ground connections ! Clean all ! ...Use die-electric compound (grease).

Your engine has rubber engine mounts, Your starter battery's ground is on the bottom of your engine.

Well, once again thanks for all your help!
The culprit was the battery ground to the frame.

I think that it was loose when I got the bike cause this puppy never has started so easy.

Thanks again..............you guys are always the best!!
