1998 VStar Classic Electrical Problems
New here to the forum and a new rider as well. Just picked up a '98 650 Classic and was having a great time on it for about 2 weeks. Went out a few days ago to fire it up for my morning commute it laboured a bit to turn over but it did. Next morning, nothing at all. Brand new battery in it but still began with simple stuff; tried to boost it and nothing at all. With the ignition turned on I get lights full on bright, horn blast for 10 seconds with no discernable battery drain and signals work fine.
Some people have told me that I'm looking at a starter problem or a solenoid. I'm somewhat mechanically inclined, but not a wizard by any stretch.
Anything that anyone could give me a hand with would be much appreciated,
