Bike Won't Start: Electrical problems - October 8, 2007, 05:47 PM

OK, so I manage to race around Summit Point all day today without incident, and then I proceded to drive all the way home with my bike on the trailer and the key in the "on" position.
Dead Battery. So, stupid question, but can you jump start a bike like a car? I ask this after already trying it of course, and not only did it not work, now I get nothing when I turn the key to the on position. No fuel pump whine, no lights on the display, nada.

So, did I fry something, or is the battery just really REALLY dead now.. any ideas?

Yes, put the bike in 2nd..hold in clutch and run with the bike or have someone push and just pop the clutch and the bike should fire right up.

Depending on how low your battery is you may need to either have it charged or replaced.

of course you can jump start it. Just never ever connect the batteries ++ -- always connect the the - from the supply vehicle to the chassis ground of the dead vehicle.

Sounds like something is not happy.
