Hi guys, I’m new and I’m liking the community. It’s good reading material
First as a disclaimer, I’m a mechanic so I know what I’m doing and have the tools, just don’t have experience on bikes.
Anyway, I crashed my M50 into a pole last August, (front wheel caught a trolley track) and in all healed up now and made the decision to repair instead of replace. The damage is mostly cosmetic, fuel tank, fenders, headlight and pegs. But I wanted to make sure it starts first. At first it didn’t start but about 15 wires on the harness behind the headlights were cut, so i professionally repaired all the wires and figured it start now, but still doesn’t. When I flip the key, the cluster lights up but the speedometer doesn’t sweep, it’s still stuck in 30mph whether the key is on or off. The odometer stays blank. Neutral light is on but the F1 lights doesn’t not come on at all. If flip the kill switch I can hear the fuel pump fire up, but if I hit the start button, nothing happens. I’ve tried a booster pack just to see what happens but nothing, I’ve played with the kickstand switch and tried to start it with the kickstand up, clutch in, all those things. Looked around for cut wires. I’ve got nothing. Now I’m confused and don’t know which way to go. I thought about getting DTCs but the cluster is blank, just backlight. Any ideas?
