I tried firing up the Roadie today, but she was unusually slow-cranking and before long started to smell electric-hot.
When I took off the seat I could see the positive battery connection arcing when I cranked on the starter.
The post melted enough that I had to replace the battery altogether.
After a search in the clinic forum, I found that this happens when the connection screw isn't tight enough and the rectangular nut is loose. So here's a heads up for you guys as you start your spring maintenece- check those connections- it just might save you a hundred bucks that would be better spent on leather and chrome.
