Hi. Steve. I have*****king. I replaced the battery and the external battery charger lead shorted between the frame and the seat and burnt the wire The issue I have is that I no activation of the starter but all other electrics are working I have check with a test light over the top of the fuses on the left hand side of the bike. Have I buggered something or is there another fuse or relay fuse that I need to check.
Expert:  Steve replied 4 months ago.

first, there is a possibility your battery was damaged. you will need a multimeter to find out.

second, your symptoms indicate our security system is enabled.

- if the FOB battery has no been replaced in the last year, replace the FOB battery and try to start again.

- the FOB does not disarm the security system, disarm the security system by the manual procedure in your owners manual.

let me know if you need more help.
