bike wont start

Postby Zaron » Sun Jan 01, 2012 8:49 pm

Hello everyone. So i recently took my bike apart. i took all the plastics off and unhooked all the eletricals(lights,ecu,battery,etc) I recently hooked the battery and ecu back up to try and start it but it wont start. If anyone could give me any ideas as to what the problem is it would be appreciated. when i turn the key the fuel pump turns on and all the electrical turn just like it normally does but when i press the start button the starter does not turn over.
again thanks for any advice you have.

the gauge cluster was plugged in but i believe it should work without it too. all the electronics were acting normal but when i hit the button to start nothing happened

Check your fuses and grounds.
Also check your battery voltage.

I would guess you have solved this by now, but check the simple "duh" items -
(you know, the ones that make you go "DUH!" when you find them)

engine cut-off switch is in the "on" position, (or hooked up and functioning if you have had it disconnected)
side-stand safety switch is functioning properly
bike is in Nuetral before starting

Obviously this is quite late but if you still haven't got your bike to start, check the fuse to the left of the battery.

There is a 30amp fuse that provides power to starter and is easy to blow if you accidentally touched positive to the body or reversed polarity. Btw, the fuse isn't easily visible b/c it's tucked in a black soft rubber eclosure.
