Hi Wendell, my name is ***** ***** you hooked up the battery was there a chance that maybe you might have hooked it up initially and then realized you might have had it backwards ? (it happens)

So next did you know for sure that this wasn't a problem prior to you were replacing the battery, and just so we are on the same page, the neutral light is on correct when trying to start the unit ?

Thanks

I have a 2005, 2005 Road Star Warrior. It is making a noise
2005 Road Star Warrior. It is making a noise that sounds like a robotic servo. It sounds like it is coming from the upper region of the engine. The engine light comes on during this. It happens after down shifting and stopping at intersections and such. I rev it up a couple of times and it stops the noise. The bike has 92,500 miles on it. I am thinking maybe it is an automatic timing chain slack adjuster that has reached its limit of adjustment. … read more
