Miss Riding:mad:DeadHorse:
I have a 1995 Heritage that I purchased used. From day one, I had a persistent electrical issue that I could NOT figure out. Tested everything, installed a new ignition switch, etc, etc. My bike would start, but it wouldn't hold a charge. I'd push the start button and the starter would engage, but not turn. Would just go, "CLUNK." Occasionally, I wouldn't even get that much - all I'd hear is the relay clicking.

When the starter would actually engage and work, due to low voltage conditions, it would stutter and grind, making the most obnoxious noise you've ever heard!! So, I replaced the starter (and installed a brand new battery) and things still weren't right. Last step? Replaced the Relay and everything's been dandy ever since.

The point of my telling you this is that, while my issues weren't exactly as yours are, that damn relay can do strange things - electrical issues always defy logic to me!

That said, it couldn't hurt to go grab a new relay and just try it. If that's not it, then you have a spare for future use. And one will only cost you $8 to $12. If you go to a dealership for a relay, however, I'd consider the aforementioned figures with a multiplier of around 2.5 to 3.5. Haha!

Good luck, amigo! I'm sure someone else with more knowledge will come along with more info.
