I have a strange starting issue. Sounds like a bad battery, but after three of them, I'm beginning to wonder.
Especially on initial startup, the motor will only turn over a couple times, and all goes dead, just like I disengaged the starter. Worse, the cluster display goes back to blank as if the battery has been disconnected.
On the initial battery (a 12 series was in the bike when I bought it) it occasionally did that when engine warmed up too, so I replaced with a 14 series that turned out to test bad at auto parts store. Got a refund and ordered another from different source. Anyway, to shorten the saga, I had to get another 12 series from Batteries+ or wait who knows how long before getting a 14.
It's back to the same antics; turns over twice and stops.
Common problem? Easy fix?
