Another click click...
Yesterday on my way to work I stop for fuel and the bike will not start back up, just clicks like I have a bad connection. I check the battery connections, but they look good.

Pushed it around behind the station and tried once more, it starts!
So I take it back home and drive the truck to work.

Last night I clean all the power connections, on the battery and on the sol.
They didn't look to bad to me. Then I take the control connection loose beside
the 30 amp fuse on the sol. The control terminals are basically corroded to nothing.
I don't know how it ever worked!
Confused

The four male spade connectors on the sol. itself cleaned up fine, so I crimped new female spade connectors on the four wires. So far so good, rode it in to work this morning.



The starter is sometimes "draggy", but I think it is due to the cheap battery I installed this year. I may have to replace it when the summer heat arrives. I think it is just not robust enough for the demands of the bike. But that is another issue... Dodgy
