Dtown_monster And I assume the first thing your checked was the gas tank, right??

NewDucMon I don't know what to make of this...it hit 40 degrees a couple of days ago and it cranked right over.

Only problem remaining is that the hi beam is stuck in the on position and wont shut off. maybe if it hits 50 that will start working.

bonzi the starter solenoid may be the problem.

iain.tod If the spark plugs were disconnected you would still get a bike trying to turn over. It just wouldn't complete the turn without any fire. You've got silence right? I think you're ignition switch/starter has to have lost connection somewhere. What really worries me is that it stopped while running at some point right? I hate to say it but this may be a job for the pros. I'm on the brink of bringing them the 750 too and I really can't afford it... Wish i could be more help bud. If i think of anything else I'll get back to you.

1UglyBastard not sure if it could be the temperature. mine has a hard time starting when it's cold. my plug connectors are on their pretty firm.

if the bike reads that it's in neutral and still shows the same symptoms, then i don't think it's your kickstand switch.

perhaps a connection to the starter is loose or dirty?

NewDucMon I also noticed that that spark plug connectors don't seem to fit on nice and snug like other bikes. am I finding my problem or is this common?
again, it worked before but not now so I don't know how that would be the problem.

NewDucMon switched a new battery in, nothing still. all the cables seem fine.

could there be an issue with the kickstand sensor?

iain.tod I had a similar situation where all the lights were on but when i hit the ignition, absolut silence. It was a dead battery. However, if you still have nothing with a new battery there must be a disconnect somewhere between the starter and the ignition. If you dont have a shop manual start by locating all the cables coming off the ignition switch and the kill switch. Look for possible breaks.

NewDucMon all the lights are on and bright, the horn is loud. the battery was purchased in june...I have a brand new battery that I am going to install anyways just to check.

iain.tod Is it possible the battery is completely dead? Can you check it on a multimeter? Start looking under the tank at your cables. Make sure all your visible connections are good. I just found a spot on my 750 where the tank edge has cut into the cables because they were laid improperly.
