OK Please help im in a tough spot. Bike wont start.
So in 5 days myself and a buddy are headed on a week long trip into Michigan's UP. When I tried to go for a ride on Sunday the bike acted like it had a dead or low battery. The head lights come on and the fuel pump primes up but when i hit the start button i get nothing. My current location does not allow me to have many tools, so basically I have the bike kit and some regular hand tools. So here is what I have,
2007 30K on the clock.
Wont start with jumper cables.
Will start if I jump straight to the starter.
Will start if I jump the starter wire at the "lug block" at the base of the gas tank, Both 30 amp fuses are good at the main "lug Block"
Wont start if I jump to the second Main wire on the lug block (Battery Side)
All other fuses check out good.
Bike is in Neutral, so the side stand switch shouldn't matter???(I know its in neutral because I had to push the bike over to the car to jump start it)
Will start when you jump directly from the bikes battery to the Lug Block or starter, So the battery is still good.
When I push the start button the headlights do go out so the handle bar switch is working.
Things to note when jumping directly the clutch lever is bye passed (bike will start without pulling it in), Don't know how to check the clutch switch with out cutting it apart.
Any help would be great I'm running out of time, I don't even know if I can order parts fast enough to make the trip.
