Exclamation No engine turnover or response.

Hey everyone, I got back from a trip yesterday and decided to ride my bike to pick some stuff up that I needed. So I rode over there and back with no problems, parked the bike then about 2 hours later I was going to ride somewhere else turned the ignition on and set it to run, pushed the start button and nothing happened, literally nothing. The lights and fuel pump were on, but no response from the engine. What could it be?

make sure the white connector going to the solonoid is fully seated.

Okay I think I checked the right connector you're referring to (the one towards the front forks?) and it's seated. Could the battery just be low on charge and I need to get a battery tender?

Follow the battery cable up from the starter, it should go to the solonoid, and there should be a white connector in between that cable, and the one going to the battery. That is the connector I am aluding to.

As far as your battery condition, if you don't have a multimeter, go to radio shack and buy one for $10. It will tell you the condition of your batter, and can also tell you if your charging system is good.

You could always put your battery on a tender overnight, but even if it starts, there is no guarantee that it is being charge while running.

You did check to make sure you're not in gear, didn't you?

Yes I did check the fuses and they aren't blown or damaged. And the bike is in neutral and I did try to start it with the clutch pulled in but same result.
I found that white plug you were talking about and made sure it was seated and no change in results.

Now you are down to either charging the battery on a tender, or getting a multimeter and get a reading.

Yup. and it's safe to put a Yuasa battery on a tender like this one right?

Some people have said it's killed theirs. Also would I need the 6v or 12v?
