Long trip planned for Tuesday! Bike won't start. 2012 Vstrom 650
2012 V-strom 650
Added Denali d4 lights, real proud of myself, hard wired to the battery because there is a switch and I was having trouble finding a hot wire that would only allow them to be turned on when the bike was on, so I attached then to the battery and figured I wouldn't accidentally leave on lights that are brighter than the sun.
From my volt meter I could see I was at 11.4 volts, then a week or so later it's dead. Normally it could handle a week of the battery tender.
I hooked it up to the battery tender now and it's at 11.1 but when I try and fire it up it just clicks, and nothing.
Tried jumping it as well after that didn't work.
Ideas? Other than be smarter???
Tough to discover at 6pm on a Friday, planned to ride from St Louis to Boulder CO starting on Tuesday morning....
Any help would be appreciated.
