Throttle housing

Hello. I seem to be stumped with my throttle housing. I'm hoping to get some clarification. I have an 05 Vulcan 750. My bike all of a sudden will not start by pushing the start button. No noise whatsoever. After some trouble shooting (checking the fuses, checking my starter relay and battery voltage) I replaced the housing. There are two dangling wires that appear to connect to something (site won't allow me to upload a picture). What do these connect to? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the power accessory wires, just there if you want to add something. White/blue I think.

Your symptoms sound the same as what I just fixed last week. Page 2, post #17: https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthrea...t=69625&page=2

That's probably right. Mention of the solenoid had me thinking down there under the side cover.

I've also noticed that my bike won't popstart after installing the new throttle housing. It worked just fine with the old housing on. I'm 100% stumped on this issue. I'm trying my best not to pay an arm and a leg for a shop to trouble shoot an electrical issue.

Quick update. I've tried doing a solenoid bypass with no success.

Are you talking about the junction box bypass I posted, or something else?

Another quick update. I decided to charge my battery. After that I tried a solenoid bypass again. This time it sounded like the bike wanted to kick over but it never did so. The solenoid was replaced today as well. Any suggestions on what to check next?
