I have an 87 softail custom that wont turn over

I just got this bike a couple of months ago and i went to start it today and it wouldnt. so i went and got a new battery. i would try to start it and the headlight would go out.i pulled the plugs and that didnt help in letting it turn over. do starters go out often or the solinoid..

Power button problem


As you said, its 4 months old and assumed under warranty cover. Contact Sony Service Center for repair because if you try yourself, will void warranty.
