I have a 05 monster 620 and it was recently mildly laid down, so i was changing out the tail light to the sequential motodynamic led light with the signals build in, got everything working and closed the seat I mght have mad a positive to ground connection, turn it off and back on, and bam no lights on dash no sweeping gauges. and no starting of the bike, i was mad, and still am.

i turn the key, fuel pump primes, but the gauge cluster is dead..

I am not sure what is going on some people mentioned a wreck safety switch , which i don't know where it is, nor how to use it,
and others mentioned a kill switch, the owners manual does not mention the two of those. please help me get it going again I want to ride before the rain this week feel free to email me, [email protected] or respond on here

The kill switch s/b the red switch on the right bar.

I used the kill switch all the time on the Buell, but the Monster manual says not to use it for normal on/off operation, so it it does get switched off by accident, bike will not start, until I finally think to throw it down.

i checked the fuses and the only one broken was the 14 for the tail light, but that should not keep the dash cluster from not powering up

well problem solved, it was that damn tail light / pilot fuse..... so check your fuses, and check another forum, this one is pretty dead

Well, I guess everyone thought you would have checked the fuses BEFORE posting on here. Didn't know we had to state the obvious first step of tracking an electrical problem.
