2003 Won't start now
A week ago the weather had finally turned so its time to get her around. Been on a maintainer all winter.
I unplug the maintainer, and it turns over very slow but does start. Warmed up a couple of minutes pulled ahead seems ok, tried to use the reverse nothing light goes out. Tried twice no luck. Shut the bike off just to see if I could hear it trying. Yes, it does try but the light just goes out.
Went to restart and no go nothing can hear the relays but no fuel pump. Charged the battery just to make sure still nothing.
Have the service manual went through what they say, fuses, pulled the saddle bag to make sure I was getting voltage in and out of the 2 relays, battery says fully charged. When I test the B solenoid for voltage out it seems ok but it is just a measure of 11 volts.
I did jump the B solenoid with the charger on jump start fuel pump runs then and it will try and start.
I didn't leave it on like that just testing.
No voltage on the two RVS fuses 5 amp in the fuse block, can't say its related?
Any help is more than appreciated.
