No Start problem
I may have posted this in the wrong spot originally, so i thought id repost it here in General...
First, if this has been covered, point me to the right search criteria, as I had no luck using search.
So, with Phx being in triple digits lately, I dont usually ride when its above 105degrees outside. The bike has been sitting for the past 2 months. I have taken it out around the neighborhood a couple of times though and have had no starting problems. This morning, I decided to ride to work. I started it up, like I usually do:
Wait for FI pump to cycle (and gauges to sweep)
starter switch on (its usually left on)
press start button
smile at the Dale Walker rumble
I then realized I hadnt put my work bag (laptop and stuff) in my topbox. I switched the key off, stowed my stuff, and went through the same process. Except, this time when I turned the key on, I was impatient, and didnt wait for the pump to cycle, or even for the gauges to finish sweepingf, I pulled in the clutch, and hit the starter button. The FI pump stopped, the sweeping stopped, everything shut off.
NOW, turning the key on doesnt do anything. no lights, no FI pump, no gauge sweep..nothing. its almost like a fuse or circuit breaker popped. I checked the fuse panel with the small fuses. all good. BAttery has 12.8 volts. the big 30 amp fuses in the junction box (clear cover?) are both good.
Im a pretty good wrench, but I hate Electrical. Its like the key switch is suddenly bad as nothing comes on....Any ideas?
