I was going to say the battery, since that's usually the cause of the odometer rest on start. It does it because there's too much of a voltage drop. But, since you have a new battery that's...

A similar thing happened to a friend of mine and under similar circumstances. In his case it tore up the back wheel, so he was out some $$. I've got a chirp coming from my front end, but it doesn't...

When it gets to the point of causing trouble, just replace it. At one time mine was acting up and if I'd wiggle it, things would work fine. I replaced it with a new one. I took the old one apart and...

It probably was a quick detach. Bags falling off does not seem to be uncommon. I was riding with a friend cross country and his bag came off while running about 70. There wasn't much left of it when...

It's an 07. Bike is stock, except it has a stage one. Factory tune and nothing has been changed over the years. It's exactly as it was when I bought it in early 08.

Along with changing a few...

Thanks, but I've had the same battery in the bike over the timespan of the start trouble and the battery has always been strong. The things it's experiencing aren't battery related, but more like...

I've seen them do that. My tender is around 8 years old, so it may have issues. However, the battery on my bike is strong. After I stopped using the tender, I'd say 98% of the improvement was noticed...

Looking for opinions. Do you think it's possible for a defective battery tender to give off a signal or noise that can affect (confuse) the function of the ECM? We know the ECM monitors battery...
