I have a newly developed problem with my 2001 sporty. When I try to start it, it trys then just clicks? The battery is nearly new, tests ok with a load tester. If I plug it into my battery tender the light goes to green in less than 20 minutes. Then it is 50/50 whether it will start again. If I remove the cover on the starter and push it in by hand it pretty much engages the same way. It is better after riding it, will not start if left unplugged for a day. The stator checks out , it is new last year. Relay, starter? anyone got any ideas please let me know.

Thanks in advance

I know you said you checked it, but it still sounds like a battery to me. I've had a bad battery tender go green right now after a ride. Confirm your battery is good, maybe take it in. Check your connections at the battery.

Sounds like, either a battery, or a bad connection on the battery, most likely ground wire. Either at the battery or at the engine.
