    '09 TW No Power.. Bad Ignition?

    Hey guys, Rode by Tdub to work yesterday. I took the long way home and rode it how I normally would. After parking it, and taking the key out, I left it sit overnight. I went to fire it up the next morning and nothing happened.

    First I thought, "Oh great, time for a battery" So I checked the battery and that was not the issue. (Put out a solid 11v) Still skeptical of the battery, I threw in another one that I knew was perfectly sound.. Nothing. After determining that the issue doesn't lie in the battery, I checked the main fuse.. Not that either.

    The Neutral light does not light up when the key is turned to the "on" position, so I began to troubleshoot the ignition mechanism. With a meter I determined that I am getting Power to the ignition (through a red wire), but nothing happens when it's turned to "on". No other wires get hot, just the original red one that is always hot. In my curiosity, I took the ignition barrel apart. Nothing seemed to be corroded, broken, or loose, so I put that back together. After reassembling the ignition, there is no definitive "click" from the off position to the on position. It's just a sloppy, analog dial now. I'm tempted to just purchase a new one instead of put this one back together for it to not work properly.

    I guess my real question here is, Should I continue to fiddle with this Ignition or should I just Purchase a new one?

    also: Has anyone had this issue? Could it be anything other than the Ignition Mechanism?

    try joining the red and brown wires together, this will bypass the ignition totally, you will know if that is the issue or not
