Dealer says it's the battery. I call B/S. After checking the battery and finding nothing wrong I took it or a ride. Going down the highway at 70mph the motor quits on me. I had the bike towed to the shop . With the ignition turned on but the bike not running the battery showed 6.6 volts. Replace the battery and have not had any starting issues since then.
I have had the seat rebuilt, put bar backs on it, and new footpegs that are lowered about 1/2" from the original height and I now really like the bike. I don't feel like I am riding a scooter any more.
