Re: K1200LT won't turn over
before you go out and spend the $'s on a new battery, try:
fully charge the current battery
put a trickle charger on it for a day or two-recommend the battery tender or equiv-not the Junior-but make it a present design-not an old one from our ancient years.
if it continues to hold a charge-which i suspect it will do-just be sure to put it on the battery daily and leave it on until you're ready to ride. when you return from the ride-put it back on. THEN if you continue to have a problem, replace the battery.
the key i have found, is leaving the trickle charger on it when not riding. since doing this i've had ZERO issues battery wise.
Just my 10 cents worth (and it has a value of 1 cent)
