Question about Garden
I can jump start my Bad boy and it will run fine, but I can not get it to start with the key. The battery is good. To jump start it I have to connect the cables directly to the starter and by-pass the battery. There must be a kill switch that is not working properly that won't let the starter engage. I don't know where it is???? Anyone know??

Disconnect the (battery) starter cable and check with a multimeter the continuity of the starter relay thru the relay terminals which connect the battery to the starter (key will have to be turned to start) -- if you get continuity, it's likely not the relay, but I'm with you, it sure sounds like the relay (solenoid).
P.S. Running a starter directly off a charger is a good way to burn up a charger.

I had the same problem 2001 XVS1100 Custom
this is a starter issue Over time the starter on this bike twists when its under a load.
Look at the two bolts holding the starter on if they are not straight across then its twisted. turn starter back in line with a pair of big channel locks and try to start this should do the trick if this works i would recommend taking the two bolts out and bend them back straight or replace and reinstall starter this should fixya problem
Hope this helps ...............Jimmyfixya
