  1. Cruisers
    I have an interesting problem. My vstar was sitting for a while. I got a brand new battery and put in new fuses. Now the bike will crank but won't start and the gauges and lights won't turn off unless I disconnect the battery or the main fuse. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it
