Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star Classic
Try jumper cables, silenoide may be bad but when it's clicking it's lack of power

Hi there. Float charging the battery is a great idea over winter. You should always remove a battery from your bike or vehicle before charging. They produce hydrogen gas (EXPLOSIVE!!) and can easily ignite if a spark is generated (from the battery charge connection) . I have seen this happen before!! I would be using a constant voltage type regulated float charger to keep it topped up. Unless you can set up the constant current type you mention for a few milliamps of charge only. If you charge it at too high a rate, with constant current, it will overcharge the battery and boil it dry. Float charge voltage of 13.5-13.8 is good for any lead acid battery. Check it every few weeks initially to be sure that it is not loosing electrolyte. Thanks for using FixYa.

i'm not sure if you are saying how to access it. if you can... just unhook the battery.... attach the charger to it ... be sure you have the polarity correct.... after charging it for few hours.... hook the battery back up.... start up the bike... and let it charge the battery the rest of the way

spray some brake cleaner or quick start to verify it will run. If it starts then the problem is still fuel related. If it doesnt start then you have an electrical issue.
