sporty doesn't want to cooperate
Picked up an '05 1200 Custom a couple months ago and it's giving me some issues that I can't quite figure out.
Two weeks ago I took an 80 mile cruise and on the way back the gauges and lights all died, no speedo, no signals, nothing, about a half mile after that the bike sputtered and quit. Luckily my wife wasn't too far away and was able to jump start me and to get myself close enough I could safely store it for the night, it died again just before I got to a place to park it and wouldn't turn over again. picked up a new battery the next day and replaced it hoping that the issue was just a toasted battery.
Yesterday I rode to work, bike started just fine, parked it and gave my 8 hours to the man, Came out to start it up and click....*long scary pause* then she rumbled to life.
I haven't changed anything other than the battery on it. It's kept on a tender when it's parked at home, when i purchased it it had 8600 miles on it, I just put it over 8900 yesterday on the trip to work.
any ideas? or anyone had the same issue?
