G'day to all I am new to this forum.
Considering a SCR
Friend of mine, great mechanic but also a bit of a mythomaniac, has beeb telling me than bolts and SCR have some sort of electrical fault that burns the carging circuit, coil or whatever he said.
Truth of utter nonsense?
A google search yielded zero results, so I am inclined to dismiss this.
Thanks for any knowledgeable answer.
Cheers!

Only thing i notice, is its a good idea to keep a battery tender on it when you arent riding it. Apparently Battery is expensive and needs to be maintained w a charger.

A healthy charging system won't bring a dead battery back to life easily, if at all.
That condition in itself can lead to charging system component failure on most anything.
Like Mellowrider says, a Battery Tender on it when you're not gonna ride for a while is cheap insurance.

Anecdotal evidence the design is sound:
My girlfriend has a 4 1/2 year old V-Star 950 (same engine, etc... as the Bolt & SCR).
It lives outdoors under a cover, even during the hot Georgia summer, and fires right up every time on the original battery.
She may not ride it for a week or three.
Zero issues all the same.

Yea the dealer warned me about the battery. Could be they wanted to sell a charger. Then again, It gets mighty cold up here and the bikes sit for long periods of time so its prob a good idea.

I also think that if the battery is dead it means that you should forget about it and buy a new one. The healthy charging system won't bring it to life again. But you can ask the professional electrician for more details. May be there are the solution that we don't know. I suggest you to ask these guys Louisville electricians. All the technicians there are very skilled and I recommend them for all electrical problems.
