SOURCE: Won't start?
With just this info.Not knowing if the engine is stock or has bigger cams or high comp pistons.I would say check the starter solenoid by running jumper wire from one side to the other.then check ALL connections for corrosion and tightness

One of them should be red, with a plastic cover on it, and the other one black, and they should only reach the terminal they belong to, The battery should only fit one way, for the wires to reach it. So, red is hot, or +,, and black is neg, or -,,, Hope this helps.

Pretty hard to offer suggestion with so little info.
If chain drive could be chains too loose.
Check oil level.
Get M/C shop to check......alot of good money at stake there.

Remove the two bolts that hold the caliper into the caliper bracket. Lift the caliper off the bracket and set aside. Do not crimp the hose as this can damage the hose on the inside.
Notice how the pads and the metal anti-rattle clips are positioned in the caliper bracket. Remove the old pads and clips and replace with the new parts. Make sure the rear pad is positioned with the fiber material towards the rotor. I've seen many put in metal to metal by good mechanics because it's on the backside of the rotor.
Now, you must compress the piston back into it's bore in the caliper. I use either a large C-clamp or a large pair of slip joint pliers to do this. Use a rag or something to prevent scratching the paint on your caliper. With the piston compressed completely back into it's bore, carefully replace the caliper into the caliper bracket. Do not disturb the pads or clips.
Install the two bolts with a bit of blue Loctite #242 medium hold on the threads and torque to 20 foot pounds. Check the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder.
Slowly depress the rear brake pedal and release until you have a full firm pedal. Test the brakes before you ride the bike. Improperly serviced brakes can cause serious injury or death. Make sure they work correctly before riding the bike.

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
