Okay so I've been deployed for about three and a half months so my bike has not moved nor started for that long. When I got back I tried to start it and everything acted properly but nothing would turn over and I assumed it was a battery issue so I charged my battery back to full at cycle gear and then they did a test along with it and everything was fine. When I put the battery back in I now don't get any power at all. Right click the bike to on nothing happens and I am sure that it is a neutral along with the kickstand being up. I have read that there is a history of the rectifier being bad which can mess up the charging system but that wouldn't make sense since before I charge the battery I was getting my lights to turn on. I checked the fuse box next to the battery and everything is good there but I don't know if there's another fuse box that I'm missing. Any help would be appreciated.

  • it sounds to me like your battery has gone bad,you should test the battery yourself by using a multimeter.what are the voltage before you try to start your bike,and what are the voltage with the engine running. – trond hansen Oct 27 '20 at 7:12
  • When you turn the ignition on do the lights (oil, neutral etc) light up? What happens when you press the starter - do you hear any noises, do the warning lights dim? I would suspect the battery first as @trondhansen mentions – upsidedowncreature Oct 28 '20 at 0:04
  • Reading again, it sounds like you're not seeing any warning lights after turning ignition on so it might be a blown fuse. You'd need to check the manuals or online to find out where fuses are. I just found a forum post that says there's a main fuse under the tail. gixxer.com/threads/fuse-box-location.260741 – upsidedowncreature Oct 28 '20 at 0:08
  • What does "everything acted properly" mean? Is this different to how it acts now since having your battery charged up? – Caius Jard Oct 28 '20 at 19:43
