It seems that your bike's battery is not getting charged while running, but if your Headlights are working then the Dynamo is OK but the rectifier/battery charging has conked out. It might be just a blown fuse or it could be in the rectifier coil/circuit. It would be best if you could get it checked from their authorized service center and get the part replaced since you said that the bike is brand new & even the distributor from whom you bought it should take responsibility for a faulty piece of equipment.................sodeep

!982 Bobcat/skidsteer 643 wont turn over,jump it and it starts up,new starter, cleaned all conection

Might check to see if the battery CCA (Cold Cranking Amp) rating is high enough. Often when people replace batteries, they opt for a lower price one which usually is also a lower CCA rating. If that is the case, your new battery simply doesn't have enough ooomph to turn it over. Jumping adds another battery in parallel which boosts the overall CCA rating. - Good luck!

Are you sure you have conected the battary up the correct polarity, red cable to the positive terminal, black to the negative, there will be a main fuse somewhere behind the dash board, or on a low tention wire conected to the battary.

Gear problems

Take it to the dealer to have a quick look at it, it could just be either a bit of running in stickyness or they forgot to check something was tightened up properly before you got your hands on it. Failing that, try an oil additive such as Slick50 in the oil tank, a fuel additive such as Redex in the fuel tank and if the engine's water / liquid cooled (spot the bike expert) stick something like Redline Waterwetter in the coolant tank... and it might feel a bit better (and last longer).

Fuel consumption

Real Life experiance, if you ride your bike at high speeds, even with Over Drive engaged, I end up doing about 180~200 miles per 5~5.25 gallons which breaks out to about 36~38 mpg.

Course, slowing it down to 60~65, in OT will get you another 25~35 miles per tank extra. If you need better MPG, suggest the 650 for the job, The litter is solid for rider/passenger, as the 650 is more for the rider only with added mileage clearly in the 40+mpg rating..
