no power

Hello All,
I just bought a 2007 Arctic Cat 650 H1 4x4 Automatic TBX with 105 miles. I just replaced the battery(guys at the dealership installed) with the recommended stock battery. I left it on the trickle charger all night and have no power. When I unhook the charger and turn the key to the on position the display lights up (sometimes) but when I pull in the front brake lever the display goes blank and the ignition is dead. There is a slight clicking sound but I'm not sure if that has something to do with the brake light coming on. Is there something that may be wired incorrectly or is this a catastrophic electrical ignition problem that will make me regret not buying the polaris? Please help!

Being its a stock battery, did the dealer put the acid in the battery before they installed it?

A low battery will cause the conditions you describe. Can you check the voltage? Should be in the 12.6 volt range. A new oem battery needs to be filled properly and charged for 8 hours or so with a 1.5 amp charger.
