Lesson Learned: Bike Will Not start, FI light comes on
This post is for future reference by any one experiencing the same problem
This morning I went to start my Vee2. All was normal (e.g., FI pressure run up, idiot lights cycled, starter worked). However, instead of starting the engine just turned over without starting and eventually the FI light came on.
I checked the kill switch, cycled the key in the ignition, and tried again. Same result.
After attempts trying the same thing and getting the same result I thought maybe the FI pump fuse had blown so I pulled the seat. Everything looked normal, but I remembered that I had been experimenting with electrical hook ups yesterday and checked the Phillips screws that attach the battery cable to the battery terminals. They were loose.
I tightened the Phillip screws by hand (didn't have a screw driver) and the bike started normally.
Given all the counter-intuitive aspects of this experience I thought it good to post this for future reference by others.
