So I was heading home over the weekend from a sleepover. I jump on the highway and within a mile she goes dark. WTF? I get pulled off to the shoulder, turn the key a cpl times , still dead. Pull off the seat and the damn positive wire is broke off at the battery! I can touch them together ans she starts up, but I have no way to maintain the connection, 15 miles from home. I called the GF who was only a mile away and had her bring me a roll of electric tape. I was able to tape the cable well enough to maintain the needed contact to get me home.
I was able to find and order a new wire, from cheapcycleparts.com but it will be a week before delivery! No riding for a week I guess, unless I carry tape with me. :)
Good time to detail her.

A new wire is on back order from everywhere I could find one, so I decided to fix it. I took the piece that broke off, and cut it so I could wrap it around the wire. Worked out great!
