New'b here with hdtalking, so I appreciate your help in advance. I have 2005 1200c with a starting issue. Lately after running for awhile and shutting down for gas or a break, when restarting it will chunck and clunck at first and restart the next try. My battery is a year old and was fully charged when I put it in. Recently I added a battery tender having moved a few hours north(NC). I went to start it up and it sounded like I had no lube in the entire crank case. Metal on metal, but it did start after 2 attempts, so could loose cables cause this or am I looking at a starter clutch and gears. This is only the second battery in this many years and I've never had any serious issue's starting before. Whenever I had to charge the battery I always took the battery out and used a slow charge, Could the battery tender be the problem (it's not HD). Thanks again.
