Well, I thought the new dry cell fixed the problem, but after a couple months, a scary start after filling up. Did the balance charge, then a month later the clock reset but started immediately after the reset. It was a single button press, reset first, scary feeling, but then starter engage and fire. I'm gonna check all my connections, but for now I'm hooking up the balance charger once a week, and this method does solve the problem. geesh, such a nice bike, but such frustration! Obviously it is not charging while riding. And obvious short or open in some place or multiple places, but where? I'll keep updating this post over the next few years. I'm not getting rid of my bike any time soon.
