Haven't started up in a few months. What to do?
Hey guys, since I got a new car last December, I haven't been riding my '08 RR regularly. Maybe once or twice a month I started her up, and let her get a little warm, then shut her down. Haven't done that since maybe June, disconnected battery that was that.
Yesterday I wired her back up and nothing on the cluster lit up, the battery was pretty much dead. Charged it back up then everything on the cluster seem to be working just fine and got her cranking but no ignition. The fuel pump seems to be working when putting the key in the on position, battery gets too weak after a good amount of cranks, probably because my HIDs are killing it.
I know I should have let it breathe a few times during that storage period, I figure I might need a new battery for sure. Is there anything else I should should do after that shelf period, to get her started up and to prevent any damage.
