Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star Classic
My bike battery drains fast. I have to jump start it even if fully charged or purchased new. Also, the seat and area just below the seat becomes extremely heated, so much that I can't stand to sit on the seat to ride for very long distances. What would cause this, and what would the approx cost be to have it repaired? Thanks!
It sounds as though the seat pan might be coming into contact with the battery and thus causing the seat to heat up and drain the battery all at once. My question would be if the battery was recently replaced and an incorrect sized battery was used. If battery isn't under the seat pan itself, check for wires that might have insulation damage that could cause a short and draining the battery. Also some people have installed heated grips on their bikes, maybe the switch for that isn't off when not in use and causing a drain.
