OK, I just read a thread where a guy had not cranked his bike for 8 months, had no charger attached during that time and the bike would not start, of course.
Now, advice given him was to "reset" by turning the throttle 2 times before attempting to start again (after charging the battery). What is this? Something I might need to know about or a joke I missed? Will be replacing my battery soon, so bike will be temporarily without any power to any circuits, etc. Dealer has told me there is no big deal with disconnecting the old battery, leaving the bike totally without power while the change out is being made. I asked about that because I had heard that on some bikes, the electrical compoments "remembered" certain things from feedback it had "learned" while the bike was in use.
Thanks for any new knowledge anyone has for me.
