Ok somebody asked me to start a new thread on this, so I will start at the beginning. I have been having some electrical issues with starting (at least I am assuming it is electrical). Since the end of last summer when I try to start the bike I was getting either no response from the ignition, solenoid chatter or slow cranking with the battery draining it's charge. So I assumed it was the battery and bought a new one, it worked fine the first few starts. This past weekend when I went to start it cranked slow again then died. I removed the battery cover to find that both of the terminals had melted. So I spent Saturday afternoon going over many of the wires looking for loose connections (as advised in the last thread) but I didn't find any, I tried to test the starter while it was still on the bike but that didn't work. I am going to take the starter out and have it tested. Any other thoughts to what could be going on???
