Check your fuses especially the 40Amp maxi fuse on the l/h side of the bike under a cover below but not under the seat.
Check, clean and tighten the main ground strap from the from the battery to the frame.

put an multimeter on the battery prion to pushing the start button....wright down voltage of battery, turn bike over via the start button, did the battery drop below 9 volts? if so, go buy a battery from a reputabe dealer that will charge it for a mimimum of 10 hrs @.2a cycle, then retry....if u still have problems order a starter relay kit, test & clean the starter, install new parts & go riding..

First check the manual that came with your motorcycle. I dont understand that you have to do anything to the exhaust. Remove the battery cover and you will see the battery. Take off the support bracket. Undo the positive and slide out the battery. It should slide out just enough to undo the bolt holding the neg cable onto the battery. then just slide out the battery. look at the neg cable where it is mounted to the frame. You should be able to see it peeking from the left side through the frame to the left side. I am only just replacing the battery on my 2004 1200 xl so if it only has 900 miles on yours you may want to trouble shoot before you do the deed. there is just enough room to charge the battery without disconnecting the cables using small alligator clamps on your battery charger. just slide the battery out as far as it will go and hook it up. I hooked up an accessory electrical plug for my bike and i was able to charge my battery with a tender. I just replaced the alligator clamps with a cigarette lighter type plug and stuck it into the accessory plug and it charged it with no messing with the battery. Just think it through and you can make it work. disconnecting from the frame is alot of work to feet the cable back through after you pull the battery out. good luck
