Well, I went to the hill country for our little get-a-way in the car. No love on the bike starting but I can say that we had a really good time.
Met Dick, Grif, and Steve for lunch Monday. Wednesday morning found us meeting Monty for breakfast (thanks Monty) and then slowly made our way home.
Ordered a new battery and it came in Yesterday. The Odyssey PC680 showed 12.86v right out of the box. I pulled tho old one out and dropped the new one in, hoked up the terminals, checked voltage again and turned the key on. Lights, brake servo noise but no luck with the neutral light. The new battery made no difference. I cussed, kicked, and had thoughts of Grif and a bag full of wet mice but that was no more fun either. I pulled every fuse I could find and they were all good. Trip to the auto store to buy new fuses just in case I could not see the blown fuse, came back and pulled one fuse and replaced it with a new fuse, no love. Out the old one back in and went to slot #2, no love all the way down.
After I did all that, I unhooked the Autocom and was going to take the tape off where we soldiered the wires on and picked up the round thing that has the audio wires in it. I unpluged the unit and looked inside, it looks good. There are three of those round plug in things so I unpluged the other two and pluged them back in. Key on and Blam, I got a green light. Woohoo! Bike starts right up!! I don't know what I did or even what happened but it's all good now.
Thanks guys for all the help and Steve, I got a battery tender now, OK, not that brand, it's a Yuasa and charges at 900mA instead on 750mA but it has the same features and it was here locally. Guess I'll use it.
