Important charging issue...input deperately needed!
Haven't diagnosed the charging system on the bike yet BUT lats night I started the bike around dusk. The electric start won't work AND when I kicked the bike it started right up but I noticed the headlight would get brighter when I got the rpm's up. Started first kick this morning first kick, however when I went to restart it the after 50 miles the battery had just enough juice to light the tail light but would not start when I kicked it. Jumped it with cables and it fired first kick. Knowing what you just read, without me putting a volt meter on it yet...does it sound like a bad battery to you? It's a very expensive glass mat battery!
