After a long winter I decided to get the 85 around incase of some decent weather.
Installed the battery and charged it.
Turned over but would not start, had spark put my hand on the pump didn't seem to be anything from it.
Can I check the pump by just jumping 12 volts?
Or is it better to jump the relay?

Side note when I went back to pull the pump noticed dampness under the water pump ARRRRRRRRRGH! :?
Have one coming from Cyclemax

And was you bike parked in a cold garage ? sometimes you'll get a little leak in the cold weather but it'll be fine when it warms up, I've had 3 1200's and all 3 dripped coolant a little in the very cold weather.

I know this is dumb but make sure your kill switch is on run and I always leave mine for around 5 months without starting it and when I do go to start it I turn the petcock on for a good 15 mins before trying to turn it over.
