Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
Ok, I've been working on this bike (my harley). So I'm connecting the rear turn lights and they won't light up. decided to check the battery and it's showing maybe 6 volts or so. oh, by the way, I haven't had it started since last fall. I accidentally hit the start button instead of the turn signal and the engine turns over. so I'm still tinkering with it and happen to notice the solenoid is warm and I'm thinking maybe it's still engaged so I go to remove the ground cable when I notice the battery is quite warm too. In the time it takes to disconnect the cable the battery is getting warmer, actually almost hot by now. So I get the battery out and I'm pretty sure it is still getting hotter. I'm starting to think there is a chance something bad is going on and it could blow up so I sat it outside of the garage where it is now. This is a seal cycle-tron battery from interstate and in all my years of mechanicing I don't recall ever having a battery heat up like that. I checked everything to see if it's ground somewhere but nothing.
