Yesterday it hit 50 here in SW Ohio so I figured I'd fire the bike up and run to the the gas station and fill it up - since I didn't do that before the cold weather set in. I was also going to change the oil and primary fluid when I got back, since it would be nice and warm. I got on the bike, hit the starter and heard clicks... Not the real rapid clicks, but one every second or so. Good solid clicks, I could feel them if I put my hand on the primary cover. I had the battery on a tender so I figured it was ok but it was also the original battery. I tried hooking up my battery charger and putting it on 'Start' but that didn't help either. My gut said it was the starter or the solenoid. I was planning on replacing the battery anyway since it was going on 6 years old but didn't think it would fix the problem. Today I picked up a battery at the dealership, put it in, and what do you know - it cranked right up! I'm surprised, happy but surprised. I figured if it wouldn't start with the battery charger on 'start' it wasn't the battery. Glad to say I was wrong.
