Good day everyone I have an issue with my 2000 year model this morning I went out and started the bike everything went well when I came out a few minutes later to check on it the radio had stopped working so I shut the bike off because it had already warmed up and went back inside when I came out to start the bike the radio was working again but the bike would not start everything seems to be working on the dashboard fine and when I press the starter button I can hear a click but nothing is happening now some outside factors it rained all day yesterday Andover night we had a slight freeze the bike is outside but covered with a soft cover I will try later on today after it warms up to make sure it is not a moisture issue any suggestions would help

Your battery is no good. (and don't try to start with a low battery, bad things happen)

Side hijack; Leaving a bike to warm up is poor practice. Start it, let it run for 20/30 seconds and drive off while riding slowly for a mile or so. Warm up while moving so things get equalized. Idling in the drive can get exhaust way hot, melt parts and even set it on fire.

When you install the new battery, turn on the key, do NOT start. Turn the throttle completely open/closed three times. Shut off key. Start bike.
