I used a big metal file and was able to hit two sides at a time. Just enough to take out the notchy wear. Worked good. Best to do it off the bike because those filings make a mess.

Battery is probably bad. Test for voltagd while running at the terminals of the batt. If you have 14v+ all is good. These typical XL batteries suck worse than any moto battery I have seen.
