I have a 2006 ER and I can’t figure out why it won’t start. I turn the ignition on and no red light comes on and I can’t fire it up at all. Completely dead. My battery stays charged but also my brake light works when I turn the ignition but nothing else. So if someone can point me the right direction thank you

First lets look at the basics. Did you check battery Voltage with a Multimeter? and what did it say? Did the head light dim when you hit the start button? Do you hear a Buzzing Sound from by the battery when you push the start butting? No Loose wires?

Here are a couple things to check first.

1. Check over by the Battery, you will see the Starter Relay just to the left of the battery, then you will also see a small white box (it's bout 1 inch by about 2 inches in size) tht white box I just described contains 2 Fuses (One fuse is a Spare) they should be a 15 Amp. Make sure the fuse it is not blown. If it is blow use the spare one. If that is all good then check step 2 below.


2. Find the connector for the Clutch Switch on the handle bars by flowing the wire down, it will go under the "hood" and it will be a Yellow/Green Stripe fire and a Green wire in a black connector. Find a way to jump those together and see if it starts then.
