    I'd load test the battery at an auto store or buy a load tester (cheap and very handy for all 12V vehicles).

    Those starter systems are rather finicky. Ensure all wiring connections including grounds are excellent.

    BTW never jump off a running car because the bike reg may fry trying to regulate the automobile alternator.

    I put it on a charger overnight, starting to think it’s no good .
    I had it charged to 14.70 on a volt meter couple days ago and had the same results. Some of the wiring was bad so I started replacing the bad stuff .

    Battery is gone. Get a new battery and make sure you have voltage coming out of the regulator.

    It seems like 90% of problems you see like this stem back to the battery.

    Thanks guys , I’ll drop a new battery in and go from there . It would be great if it’s the battery, but I did have a chance to tighten up all the wiring.
    Thanks again
