Sounds like a dead battery.

The battery itself may be bad, or the charging system may have a bad component and is not recharging it properly.

Pull the battery and charge it and then have it tested.

If the battery is bad then you're home free, if the battery tests good then you'll need to check out the charging system.

Yeah, at the shop, "loose nut behind the wheel" is a common cause of several faux prblems/complaints/issues.

If you continue to turn the key and eventually the lights come on, you likely have some contacts that dont have good continuity...

To check the battery posts, turn key on then move the cables on the battery(which shouldn't move since they should be tight.)

A bad battery wouldnt allow the instrument cluster lights to come on, go off, come on again; it would get weaker and weaker to the point that no lights come on.

Well this guy crashed his bike not so long ago, so no telling via the forum. It could be anything. Loose relay, fuse, cut wire etc. It is futal to even try to diagnose this on the web.

ok bump for this question, what if both the battery load tests fine AND the charging system checks out good but the battery still doesnt hold charge for more then 3 days (same problem Im having with my bike now and Patrick and his crew cant seem to find the demons banging on pots in there )
