Just bought my son this brand new outlaw 70. He rides the crap out of it. Problem now is you have to hold the key to the start position before it will crank. Like hold it for 2 seconds. Then it starts.
The rear break light stays lit when it's off. Not sure why yet. I need to investigate that aswell.

Could this brake light be lowering the battery voltage and that causing the issue where you have to hold the key? It cranks fine once it does crank.

Any thoughts?

Sounds like maybe low voltage on the battery? Maybe you could charge it back up, or temporally try a battery from another machine?

Put it on a trickle charger last night. Haven't had the chance to get back to it. Thanks for the reply.

So why are you screwing with it? Take it back to the dealer and get it fixed under warranty.

^^^ What he said. I wouldn’t touch it. If you screw with it and then end up taking to Dealership, and they see you were messing with it, they’ll blame you!
