Question about 2008 Ridley Auto Glide TT
I have had three instances where the battery terminals have come lose. The first time it happened I was riding the bike home just after leaving the dealership. The bike just shut off and wouldn't restart. I was so disappointed. But the dealership was very good and picked up the bike for me. They told me that the only thing they found was that the negative terminal had come lose. They delivered it to the Harley dealership where I work which is about 180 miles. After about a month the bike had done the same thing it just shut down and wouldn't restart. My shop said the battery was dead and the terminals were lose. I replaced the battery and watched the Tech. tighten the battery. Now three weeks later the bike starts to shut off while I was riding but
This time there was alot of smoke coming from under the seat. I found the Start Mod had a melt down. Now I'm still waiting for part to come. Has anybody had a similar issue? The bike is an'06 TT with only 710 miles. I bought it used with 660 mile on it.Let me start by saying that someone is not getting the the battery terminals tight to begin with. These are just bolts not Ridley bolts and should be tightened as you would tighten any bolt. If you find that bolts are continually getting lose there is a product called Loc-tite that can be applied to the threads to prevent loosening. The smoke is a different matter. Generally when this happens we find aftermarket lighting or changes in the original wiring. You now need to see a mechanic,
