Bike flipped out today

I turned the key on today and all turn signals and brake light are lit up, which is odd because they are not supposed to be. Also the headlight doesnt power up when i turn the key on, nor does the full pump, which means the bike wont start Any idea what this could be?? I need some help on this one, i would really hate to have to tow the bike somewhere

Re: Bike flipped out today

What bike do you own? Did your bike get wet recently? check your fuses first.

Re: Bike flipped out today

can you hear the fuel pump run as soon as you turn the key on??

but that doesnt make sense b/c the other stuff isnt working properly,, so it shouldnt be the fuel pump,, i would take it to Patrick and let him check it out for you.
Have you dropped the bike or anything prior to it failing to start?

No, the fuel pump doesnt come on when i turn the key, nor the headlight. I have never dropped the bike. I was hoping i could figure it out, i hate to have to tow my bike over there, but i guess im not going to have a choice

Re: Bike flipped out today

first try calling a shop, preferably motorcycles unlimited (Patrick has been know to come pick you up himself, saving you a big WRECKER FEE) tell him the prob,, it may be something he can troubleshoot over the phone and get you going again, or it may be something that he'll have to see for himself,,, but he may help you out by picking up the bike himself,,,,
