the first time it died while i was sitting at a red light. the shop replaced the battery. two days later, i ran it for a few minutes... turned it off, then went to start it again and heard a clicking sound (like not enough battery). Also, the headlight and panel lights were dim.

Check the spark plug too...that could be a reason for it not starting.

Sounds like there may be a short in the system killing your battery... either that, or your rectifier is toast and won't recharge your battery...

i decided to have it carried back to the shop that changed and the battery and "checked the system" im hoping they cut me a break since they supposedly checked it before i drove it home last time. i havent heard what it was, but some friends have said it sounds like the voltage regulator/rectifier. any idea on what it costs to replace one of those?
