new bike for us and we are still new to the motorcycle family. Sadly this has been in the shop longer than we've had it in our garage. First it was just rear brakes and tune up. We replaced battery and changed oil and filter ourselves. Got it home and within 24 hours it was leaking gas all over the ground. Back to the shop it went and had a full carb job done. Finally picked it up just this last Saturday and we both decided to take bikes (I ride a Rebel) out for our first ride together before the storm came. Sadly we did not beat the storm and decided to pull over under some trees. When we finally decided to get back on the road his bike wouldn't start. GRRRR. After waiting about 10 min he got it to start but then it died at the next red light and we had to pull over again. This time I had to go on home get the truck and we were able to jump start it but again it kept stalling. Hubby finally learned the art of it kick starting if it was still rolling cause it started dying while riding down the road. Thoughts crossing our minds. Is battery getting charged? Did rain have anything to do with it? (I was able to start it up today on its own after putting it on battery tender for last 2 days) Hubby tightened up battery connections when he got home and then theres the question about green and black wire connection that was not connected well and when I touched it it came undone, obviously not connected well. Not sure what this is but its near the battery and one side of it connects to the underside of the gas tank. Thoughts on what this is and could it have had anything to do with this weekends stalls? I have pictures but not sure if I can attach them here.
