I have a 94 FZR600 that won't crank. Here are the symptoms. After turning on the ignition switch, all lights come on as expected. When I press the starter button, the headlights dim, and the starter motor is not being engaged. I also don't hear the fuel pump.

The other odd behavior is that the right side indicators flash much faster than the left one. Not sure if the two issues are related.

  • Have you fully charged and tested the battery? When was the battery last replaced? As I don't think it will be the original.... – Solar Mike Feb 24 '19 at 15:00
  • Hi @solar mike. Yes, I have. I also ran the same test with a different, known good battery. I got the same results. – gedelmann Feb 24 '19 at 16:14
  • Has a ground cable been left unconnected? Are all the connections and cables in good condition? – Solar Mike Feb 24 '19 at 16:17
