2001 F4i not starting: Solutions?
After ending the riding season towards the end of last fall, my bike has been stored in my shed until now. When I attempted to start it, my bike was completely dead.
I attempted to hook it up to a quick-charge system. Ordinarily, after doing this for a few minutes, I would be able to start a bike up--even if it meant the charger had to stay on. But, even with the charger still hooked up, there's no dice.
I'm kind of broke at the moment, so can't afford to have it towed to the shop and such. I also don't want to experiment with buying parts. What could it be? Is it likely the battery, or would it be the regulator? Any other things to try before I purchase one of these?
