    Default starting trouble

    The bike was cranking but would not start. then suddenly it went dead. no indication/light in ignition etc on instrument panel. I have started opening the Left fairing to reach the fuse box. It is a year 2005 bike. Any suggestions please....

    Check the battery first, if battery is below a certain voltage think its like 10 volts, the motor will slowly spin over but not fire off due to not enough voltage to fire off ECU, injectors, light the dash, and so on. If the battery is low how old is it? Have rectifier checked and stator checked to ensure proper charging system functions.

    +1 million........lost count how many posters here with starting issues werre caused by a bad battery. Take your batterry to an auto parts store and have it LOAD-TESTED. BTW, welcome to the ORG (although you did sign up back in 2010).
