Hey,

Need some advice and this is the closest forum I could find to post this question.

I had a dead battery that I charged and then returned to my '98 Sporty. When I went to start it I had power until I hit the starter button, then it just died. No power, no nothing.

Someone mentioned that since it was the original battery it might have just "blown". But, before I get another battery I want to make sure that the problem isn't a short or an alternator issue.

Any ideas? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

-Lee

Barak,

Welcome to the forum.

Here's my 2 cents . . . this battery is at least 4 years old and has given you it's all. For every day that you try to squeeze another day out of it, you are losing a day of riding.

But hey, on the other hand, it might just give you another 100 miles before it konks out again. Just better hope it isn't 100 miles from home!

Forget trying to salvage more time from it and go buy yourself a new battery!

Sound like a bad conection. Check for crossion at the cabel ends.
If in fact that battery is 4 years old you did real good.
