ummmm... bonneville club... i have SINNED

so remember how you told me to clean my battery cables/ boots. i did... i cleaned the negative one and it looked so clean that i didn't bother with the positive one. WELL. I searched some old topics and learned that the positive cable is way more prone to corrosion... cleaned it, and the stupid thing started.

So from now on I PROMISE to not post "won't start" threads without cleaning BOTH the battery cables/ boots.

Sinner...lol That'* funny.

Did you remove the bolts and the boots to get a real look at the cables and crimps? Playing a little devil'* advocate here to make sure you don't have the same problem very soon.
