Your problem is you have too many new bikes with low mileages!!
I also thought that statistically this just could not happen. I immediately put the bike on the 'Tender' to ensure battery topped off. It was. When I was broken down, did all of the change 3 keys trick. Nope that didn't do it. Since this all took over an hour, the prescribed, 'wait 1/2 hour and it will likely start.'. Nope

And yes Rick, I just swapped out the 2nd defective ring on the ADV and it failed on the Adventure also. Remember, this is a 463 discontinued ring. There's no doubt now it is the ring.
