Glad you are back on the road.


I'm one of those who used the blue loctite. Loctite 242 Medium strength thread lock is good stuff to use on any fastener than might rattle loose.

cokerb Thanks guys. Battery cable was loose. I had tightened the connection a couple of months ago but one had worked loose. Have had it become slow to crank due to loose connection but never turn over and then just completely quit. Thanks again. Now ready to ride in the A.M.

RickyRaveOn I had to take my starter switch housing apart and clean up the contacts once. It acted like a dead battery.

awsumx I had something similar happen this year. I was leaving for our Good Friday Service. The bike was running fine, I shut it off to adjust my Boss MC400 speakers,when I went to start it back up I had only enuf power for my tunes,that's it. I checked all my connections,cables and grounds and still nothing. I rolled the bike back in the garage, and hooked it to my charger.The next morning I had a green light as if it charged over night. I went to start it, still nothing.I took my battery in to my local bike shop,they tested it and it was dead. I installed another Yuasa and away I went. Chinese batteries, batteries from Farm & Fleet ,Batteries Plus etc just dont last. All my batteries have and will always be Yuasa. Good Bro, I hope its an easy fix

Hans&Feet 1300S, would be nice on the "sig" line...
Did you turn the IGN switch OFF and then back ON???

Mine had the same symptom that yours had, when I recycled the key switch then the lights
worked until I hit the starter switch again..
Mine was a battery that died--went 90% open, enough for lights and bump starts.

A recent thread, the fuse blew and the battery was dead...
Check the battery terminals and have battery load tested unless
you have a voltmeter and can test battery voltage.
