    TW will not start after changing the front sprocket

    I changed my sprockets (rear and front ) and after putting all the TW together, I can not start the TW. I just hear noise from the battery. I was very careful not to touch any electrical when reassembling the front case. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    All I would say is that you messed up a wire coming off the stator. Will it crank at all? Or does it not fire while cranking over?

    no, it does not crank up, just a buzzing noise is coming for the battery area. might have to open it all up again.

    thanks for your advise.

    i read some about the torque applied to the bolts when putter the strator back can make the bike not start? any truth to that? Sound impossible

    Could be a pinched/damaged wire when you put the cover back on.

    I bet you pinched a wire in there and is grounding out. A few here had similar issues doing the same thing. Remove cover and inspect well. Anyone wanna place a bet on what color wire?.....

    Definitely start with the battery. If it is low on acid it's not going to work or will not work very well if it is. Rule the battery out first then look into the next logical possibility.
