    Good Morning All,

    I need a little help please. Rode the trusty TW to work as usual (06 bone stock) shut it off and then needed to restart it. Turned on the key, thumbed the kill switch and nothing. Zip. Nada.

    This thing has never so much as hiccuped before..... I'm at work, so I can't really go dig into it either. Just wondering if there is a relay or fusable link or somesuch issue that has come up before? I don't like getting on here at work, but sure could use some direction.



    Thanks all!

    Take it out of gear or pull up the kick stand. You have one of the multitude of safety features playing against you. When you get nothing (no click, no turnover etc.) you know its the kill switch, kickstand, or tranny safety devices. Good luck, You've probably figured it out by now. Tom

    Hey Guys,

    Thank you for the input!

    I played with all the safety cutouts, couldn't get any relief....didn't want to take the seat and all off to check the bat connections here are work, so no, but will as soon as I get home. I did roll it down the back of the loading dock and she bumped right over and ran fine.

    Interesting facts: When I turn on the key there is no electrical change, no headlight, blinkers, brake light, nutral indicator, nothing. With it bumpstarted, all lights work fine, and the bike runs fine.

    I went ahead and ran it home at lunch, so it's safe in the shop until I can get home and check it out.



    Still looking.......

    This last post really makes it sound like a battery connection or battery.

    And if you would be so kind, please let us know what the problem is when you find out. Thanks

    Main fuse blown? Right hand side of the bike, under the side cover.
