The first thing I would do is clean your battery connections very good. you may have to remove the plastic covers off the cable ends to get them cleaned good. Also make sure you get the connection bolts tight.

Harleys pull a lot of amps starting,, Just because the battery says 12v doesn't mean the charge is handling the draw when trying to start them ,, get the battery LOAD checked,, remember also,, Harley's are known for drawing Juice when starting , thats why any dealer or shop will tell you that if you start one be sure and drive it a while,, start and stop trips eat up the battery since the alt won't keep up with the charging. when I leave mine for any time, I use one of the trickle charge units just to keep it at full

Yes batterys can come apart inside. The plate breakdown and drop into bottom not allowing charge anymore. Low charge can do alot of weird things to you jag. Replace the battery and when you do have them check alternator charging ability while your there. Almost all auto store will do this for free.

hope this helps.

Won't start after winter

Big explosion was probably from a large amount of gas that ran into the exhaust system and then ignited when you started the bike again. There probably is gunk from sitting in the carb. If you can't find them, then you probably should not disassemble them by yourself. It should not cost to much for a dealer to clean it for you.
