Bike Won't Start After New Mods
Apologies first off if anyone is seeing this twice, I x-posted in Reddit.
I just replaced the clutch cover on my '09 Bonnie after painting it flat black. It shifts fine. I filled the oil and went to start it, but the bike just clicked at me like it would if the battery were dead. I replaced the battery with a new one, charged it overnight with my battery tender, and in the morning tried again. It failed to start. My analog voltmeter shows, prior to starting, the needle in the middle of the green area (I'm assessing somewhere between 12.4 and 12.6v). When I attempted to start the bike, the needle oscillated wildly between the upper portion of the red zone (no idea what the actual voltage was here) and the middle of the green zone. It is accompanied by that same repeated clicking and flickering of lights. What am I missing?
Thanks in advance for your help.
