I was working on replacing my tail light with an LED sequential light, it all works now, but following that, I was going to take it for a quick test ride and accidentally tried to start it in gear without pulling in the clutch (because I'm dumb; a really stupid mistake). The bike lurched forward and the check engine light came on.

Now, whether the bike is in neutral or in gear, stand up/down, clutch in or out, and any combination thereof, it won't even turn over. I hear the pump prime, I hear the starter click (or the solenoid for it) and I can see a tiny bit of movement in the open clutch. But nothing goes.

Thanks,

Jason

I checked those, and they were good. What I didn't bother checking was the battery. I didn't bother because everything seemed to work electrically speaking. But it didn't have enough juice to power the starter. After I hooked it up to a trickle charger for about an hour, it started right up. Sorry to waste anyone's time :p
