I have a 2004 Honda Rancher ES that I have neglected a little this summer. Its seen very little use, and I've had to charge the battery or at least give it a boost to get the electric start to fire each time. This time though, it seems to be dead. I can still start it with the pull start, but even then the electric shift won't work. So I have to do it by hand (a huge pain in the ass).
Anyone have any tricks or useful expeiences to help me with this. I've checked the fuses, and think the battery is still OK. My next step will probably to buy a new battery, but at $70-$90 I want to make sure I'm not missing something else. If all that fails I'll have to seek out the professionals.
