I decided to take it to the shop. I am not mechanically inclined
enough to go much further. I was hoping it would be something
simple, but it was getting too deep for me! LOL

Thanks guys!

I will post the results when I find out!

It seems that my power commander had lost its mapping. While it was still cranking without a map, it finally fouled the plugs.
Thankfully, that was all!
Thanks so much for all the help!!!!

I have a 2006 Vulcan 2000. It has Vance and Hines exhaust
and a power commander. The battery recently died and required
replacing. I put the new battery in and everything seem to be great.
I went approximately 5 days without cranking it. I finally got around
to firing it up..it just clicked as if the battery were dead. I removed
the battery and put it on a 2 amp slow charge. The battery charger
show that it charged fully. I put the battery back in and tried to
crank the bike. It would not crank, the FI light stayed on. I put it in
neutral and it cranked. I put it in gear and it went dead. It will
not turn over or even click unless its in neutral. I put it back in neutral
and tried to crank it again...it just clicked and the FI light came
on and the start kind of bumped several times, but wouldn't crank.

Could I have a bad battery? or is there something else?

Thanks in advance for any input!!!!

:hohoho:
Battery is too small does not having the crank power. At best. K
Sounds VERY much like a bad battery to me... can you put it back in, put the charger on it and crank it while the charger is connected? Give it a couple of minutes on regular charge first, if you can (if it's that kind of charger...), then let me know what happens...
battery is unable. To crank the motor. Test as follows. Get car battery. Cone has jumper leads positive to positive. Neg to neg. make sure lead don’t short. An hav a good. Connection. Try in. Natural firs research then with clutch in. Should start. Ok. If start. Vith clutch. Get the best battery that fits
