Anybody know about Goldwings?
I have a friend who rides a 2005 or 2006 (can't remember) Goldwing. He had it on a battery charger last night and walked out to the garage and found the wires burning on the charger battery clips. He doesn't think it did any damage to the bike but it won't start. The battery had been pretty much dead before trying to charge it. When he turned the key on the lights and radio and all the digital read outs worked but the bike wouldn't start. I didn't have a multimeter so I couldn't check the battery (I live over 100 miles away). We checked all of the fuses and found none blown. We saw no physical damage to anything. He put it on a battery tender plus and it seems to be charging correctly. Any idea what we need to check? I don't know if the radio and lights still work on a Goldwing with a near dead battery.
