That is the Yamaha Star 1100 you are thinking of. You have to remove the exhaust to change the oil filter. Pure genius of engineering.

He says he checked the battery and fuses and they were fine, I assumed that meant it stuck it back in the bike?

Yamaha has nothing on the Honda Magna 700. You had to remove the rear wheel and fender to replace the fuel filter.

As well as many other duties, I troubleshoot computer problems for a living. Always go for the easiest reason for a problem. This guy never said he bought a new battery, so my LCD is that he stuck the battery back in the bike and expected it to work.

Yep! Always check for the 'I-D-10-T cause first!

My vote is that one or both terminal lugs were snatched almost completely out of contact, or the bus bar is 'compromised'.

So, he gots some volts, but he not gots no amps.

Yes well noting beats an old Jawa with internal crank seals and kickstart springs in the middle of the cases. Kickstart springs the size of garage door springs with about the same strength. And then there's the fabled Sunbeam Tiger with the holes in the firewall for sparkplugs 5 & 7.

No sweat Matt. No one here would dream of challenging you for the title of: "Owned The Most Bizarre High Maintenance POSes." You are the world champion after all.

Is it just me or does an Intruder with an electrical problem sound like a scene from an Austin Powers movie?

It's not mine, really!
