Exclamation Bike wont start.

I accidentally hit the kill switch while pulling into my drive way. I came to a complete stop so I could open my garage door after that I tried to start my bike and it wouldn't start. I am pretty sure that it is the battery but I just got a new one like 5 months ago..... So any opinions on what else it could be?

Has it been sitting? The battery may be weak. It may start up after it cools down. I would charge it

Did you turn the switch back on to start it?

Take it to the auto parts and have them do a load test.

Did you check the battery connections? Since you recently changed it maybe a bolt came loose.


Or its low on blinker fluid. WDIK?

Did you try to connect the battery to a battery tender? If not, check the battery connections, hook it up to a battery tender and after couple hours, try to start again.

that would be why your battery died... check the wiring.

+1

My bike had a wiring issue in the key ignition area which kept my head light on. Granted we're talking about a 30 year difference of bike's here, BUT HEY it's a start.

This is gonna sound dumb but make sure but there is a way to turn the key where the tail light stays on and you can remove the key. I think it locks the front as well. But I know I could remove the key and the tail light was on. I think you had to turn it all the way to the right instead of the left.

Wrap the battery with Limburger cheese. This will recharge it in about 45 seconds. Works every time. Also, if you are in a pinch and can't find any cheese you can let about 10psi out of the right side of the front tire. It causes the bike to lean a little, but that's the point. It will make the acid wash up to one side of the battery and make contact with the electro stagmire plate cams in the battery.

No, man! If he let out more than 8.88psi, it will throw the Earth's Fibonacci Function out of Equilibrium and plunge us into a thermal nuclear winter! That'll throw Earth out of the perfect planet alignment I just put in place this morning.

Do you want to see Lucydad get a new Sport Tourer or not??!
