Need help all around.

Hi everyone. I aquired a 2004 big bear chopper. It was my dad's and was passed on to me. I've never worked on a vtwin style bike. I've always owned sportsbikes. It's apparent that this bike has electrical demons running through it. Some days it'll crank, some it just spins over, some it won't do anything. There's a board on the back of the oil pan that I suspect is the problem. Can anyone tell me what this board is? It has a few green lights. When I hit the start or key it'll light up more green lights and there is a relay on it. Really anything you can tell me about this bike would be appreciated.

if iut spins but doesn't engage it is more likely the Jackshaft not engaging the ring gear.... pics of the bike will clarify what type of starter you have as there are several types could also be the Starter Clutch gone bad as they are a weak link, they go on the starter end of the jackshaft and are easy to change once the starter is removed
