87 Suzuki Intruder VS 700 no start

#1 Unread post by Jiggee11 » Mon Apr 22, 2019 8:48 pm

I was connecting a new battery in a 87 Suzuki Intruder VS 700 and I hit metal, it made a big spark and smoked a bit. When I tried to start it the lights came on and looked good, but when I pressed the start switch it did nothing and the lights dimmed really quick to no lights at all. Could it be something lease besides the battery or maybe the battery didn’t have a fully charge.

Any suggestions would be Appreciated.
