    Here is my brother's reply:

    I would first try to jump the battery. Then sounds like you need to use a voltmeter or a test light, start at the battery and work down the line to the different circuits. I'm guessing the kill switch or a fuse for the starting circuit is the problem. Put a voltmeter or test light across the battery and try to start it. If the voltage drops way off, the battery is only taking a surface charge... Enough to do the lights but not enough ummpp to engage the starter.

    They will be putting in a new battery. You simply can't do a complete discharge on this type battery and expect it to fully recover. And electronic ignition systems are VERY touchy about voltage. Points would keep running far deeper into a discharge than electronic ignition will. In fact they work fine to the point they shut down... points gave you some warning something is amiss.
