Thanks for the advice. I had an Auto Shop load test the battery. They said it was good. The prior owner may have replaced it. I think I remember him saying he did but, not 100% sure. The globe in the dash works because it does come on when I turn the ignition on. I checked the fuses and the 5A fuse closest to the rear wheel is blown. I replaced and it blew again immediately. Key was off. I have bike partially apart. I am thinking I should put back together and look for any wires touching where they shouldn't etc.
The bike was running fine and you parked it for the winter. Ignoring the battery for the moment. Do you have rats or mice? Have you checked for a chewed on wire? Could be why the fuse keeps blowing?Did you do any work on it over the winter?Does the neutral switch wire on the trans have power?On the starter, you have the small wire for the solenoid. Does it get power when you push the start button?Tom
Which fuse is blowing I missed that.
One of the 5A, specifically the one closest to the rear wheel.
Another question. I used a multimeter and with fuse E out, I put one probe on the blue-green wire coming in/out of the clutch switch. In the wiring diagram link above, it's #2 in the multi-connector below part #7. I got a reading of 2.8. It didn't matter if the clutch lever was pulled in, or, if the side stand was up or down. Does that tell me anything? Or, help locate which wire the short is in?
2.8 what? Volts, Ohms, that wire is called the sensor ground, and where did you have the other probe?I suspect you don't get a signal on the wire to the solenoid because the logic is stopping it.Just as the clutch switch has a Pull-up resistor the other switch inputs also have the equivalent inside the ECU.I dot think any of the switches will work if the fuse is blown.I think item 21 will be a small circuit board but I don't know where it is on the bike.Anyone out there who knows where this item 21 is, please help us out. Other than that I will look for it on mine tomorrow.
I had asked about this wire because of the no crank issue. Remember there was/is a bad battery issue. He was able to get it to crank, not start, by jumping from the battery wire at the starter solenoid to the heavy wire on the starter. With no power from the starter switch to the solenoid, I agree that a fuse or relay or the like is the problem.Still wondering what happened to it while parked? That's why I asked about mice. But then again, if a wire was going to fail, it could have been when he rode it in to the garage the last time, as in last night or last year.Tom
