    My 16 year old son thought he would surprise me last weekend by making sure the battery on my V-Star 1100 Custom was fully charged. So he left the charger on it all night and most of the next day.

    Now it won't start. The battery reads at 12 volts as do the posts on the starter relay. But turn the key on and voltage drops to 2 or less. Push the starter switch and you get a real fast clicking sound coming from the starter relay. Is it possible he burned out the relay? Please help! It's time to ride!!!

    I did a similar thing when I first bought my bike, but I had the amperage on the battery charger too high. I ended up having to buy a new battery (and a battery tender).

    It's just time for a new battery....
