Start motor not responding
I Went on a Friday-Sunday trip this weekend with my 2016 V-strom 650. Everything looked and sounded as normal when I turned the ignition key on Sunday morning (after ca 700 km), but nothing happened when I pressed the start button.
The kill switch and all fuses that I've found (one fuse box, ABS fuses and a 30A fuse inside a white plastic box) seems ok. My friend helped me to start it with a little push, so I guess it's not a problem with the side stand sensor or any sensor that checks if the bike is upright.
I did add a 12V and a double USB outlet (eager beaver + adventuretech) so I wondered if my phone (or wiring) might have played a part in this, but charging the battery for a few hours made no difference. The voltage doesn't drop noticeably when turning the ignition or holding the start button down.
Does anyone have a suggestion on where to look next?
I have warranty on it, but I know next to nothing of bikes and would like to take this opportunity to learn something.
