    You didn't say if it was turning over and not firing or not turning over at all.

    Always give as much info as possible if you expect answers that will help you to diagnose your problem.

    Could be something as simple as the engine kill switch if OFF. If you say you had lights and they did not dim or engine wouldn't turn over, that would be the simple answer.

    We really do need more symptoms and remember your Fine-C Fuel, Ignition, Neutral, Engine Kill Switch and Choke (you have fuel injection so this is N/A).

    Sounds like the battery had discharged enough sitting around so that it would not start the bike. As Hobbit said above, get yourself a battery tender and plug it in when not riding. These devices are designed to maintain your battery at peak charge without frying them like a regular charger would. Worth the investment of $30 or less!!

    TQ

    Plus you get the bonus of your battery lasting for years longer with a tender than the usual two years you get normally. Pays for itself.

    You still should tighten the cables,charge the battery and check for corrosion at the fusse area! You get away from home and she don't start ........:bigsmiley15:
