Bike would not start
The other night I rode about 10 mins down for a coffee. Tried to start the bike after about 20 mins and the starter would just spin and would not engage. After about 30 mins, a friend showed up and he pushed me so I could pop start the bike. Rode home and shut the bike off. A few mins later it fired right up. I have 55 watt driving lights that I had on. I had a suspicion that my battery was low so I put my batt tender on the battery and charged it up overnight. It took almost 12 hrs to get the battery up to full charge. I have some PIAA 510 lights for sale since I took them off the bike! It would appear that the lights drew down the battery too far to have enough juice to turn the starter/engine. The odd thing is I have had these lights on since the beginning of the summer with no issues. I have not had any probs since that incident 3 days ago and I took the lights off. Bike fires right up with no problem. The only extra draw I plan on using is my electric jacket and will shut it off several mins before I stop. Hopefully, this will not draw down the battery too much. I suppose I should get a voltage meter to check the battery when I use my electric clothing. What do u all think?
