Same happened to me. The dealer was 68 miles north of me and I picked the bike up with a trailer. I insisted on a new battery and they shipped one to me UPS next day. Once the battery is dead, it should be replaced and you should insist on a new one that was properly serviced. The installation can be a bit tricky since it's located at a 45 degree angle at the neck and requires you remove the lower half of the airbox. The owner's manual provides sufficient instructions. Also, a Battery Tender is worthwhile and this is the time to install the Tender's battery leads. Good luck with your new V-ROD!
