Is the red key symbol illuminated on the face of the speedometer? If so, it means your security is disabling the starter circuit. The most common cause is a weak or dead key fob battery. If you have security I'd suggest trying your other fob or replacing the battery in the fob you have. It takes a 2032 model battery and gets installed positive side (writing side) down.
If you don't have security and have a volt meter we can do some further troubleshooting.
Please let me know what you find. Thanks, P.J.
The fob is wireless and automatic. It just needs to be in close proximity to the bike. If they key symbol goes off then its is disarmed.
