    Came home from work Friday. A short while later, I needed to run an errand. I hopped on the TW -- no start! No headlight, no nothing. Battery voltage good. No power to starter solenoid.



    Next day. Removed headlight bezel/fairing. Removed instrument panel. Remove headlight support. Removed ignition switch. This is what I found...









    I soldered the power wire back onto the lug of the ignition switch.









    Re-assembled. Works fine. Problem fixed.



    I have no idea why the wire separated from the switch other than a faulty solder from the factory. Denise (wife) theorizes that it's due to a theft of the bike several months ago (we're going to court 7/12).

    Who cares. 30 minutes of diagnostics and repairs. Pennies to solder the broken connection. I'm back on the road again.



    Life is good!

    Nice job immgunn. It sounds like you're a "can do" kind of guy.
