Start button pressed....nothing!
This morning, I was going to take advantage of the beautiful day and take a ride. Got the bike out, key switch on, starter button pressed, a small grunt from the starter, then nothing. I thought maybe the battery was low, so I charged it up for the day. Still nothing.
I tested voltage to the starter terminal (under the bike) while holding in the clutch and pressing the starter button and did not get any reading. Battery voltage is 12.5v. Bike started a few weeks ago without any issue. Also tested for 12v at the solenoid and did not get any. One thing I did not do was short across the solenoid terminals to see where the issue is- starter or switches. Will do that.
Here is one thing that I am observing that is different. My headlamp used to stay on with the keyswitch and now it is not. Is there some connection between headlamp and starting system?
Been a while since I needed to post. Guess my time is up!
Thanks for any input.
